Abstract (EN)This policy brief investigates the potential role of African migrants in the strengthening of African democratic institutions by taking Mali as a case study. By conducting different survey among migrants and non-migrants, we observe that migrants and returnees coming from democratic countries are more prone to be interested in politics and tend to participate more to associations or village and commune councils. However, expectations with regards the capacity of migrants abroad and returnees to consolidate democratic institutions in their country of origin should not be too high.
