Erulkar, A., & Hailu, E. (2024). Young female migrants and job placement brokers in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Front. Reprod. Health 6:1241571.

Abstract

While many studies examine the motivations for migration or post-migration experiences, few studies explore the experience of migrants at the point of arrival into destination cities. Rural-urban migration can be unplanned and solitary for many adolescent girls and young women, and they often rely on brokers upon arrival for placement in a job. Using data from different categories of respondents at terminal bus stations, this study examines the experience of migrant girls and young women at the point of arrival into the city, including their preparedness for migration and arrival in the city, their support system and risks they encounter early in the transition to the urban center.
