ABSTRACT
South-South dynamic migrations offer the opportunity to some impoverished countries to establish a Diaspora outside their territorial bases in the perspective to address the issues raised by this phenomenon of extreme poverty from abroad. First of all, it is noteworthy that the volume of South-South dynamic migrations rises to more than 61 million people, versus 62 million people in the South-North dynamic migrations. In other words, this increased propensity to mobility, which represents almost one billion people, nowadays concerns parts of the world that face extreme poverty respectively. The analysis of South-South dynamic migrations will focus our attention on one aspect of globalization that studies and expertise tend to avoid by focusing only on trading, goods and capital services. Apart from these various elements that contribute to globalization, it is necessary to include international migration to make the analysis more comprehensive. To paraphrase the words of the analyst Bruno Hérault, there is a new trend emerging in the context of the occurring exchanges between the two countries. However, according to the authors of the report posted by the UNDP in 2009, migration flows can be understood as a major vector for human development. In this regard, the report in question requires States to remove barriers in order to promote human development and allow human mobility.
