As readers of this blog will know, my research interest is migration and this week, my colleague Kobby Graham was featured on BBC as an example of the returnee-migration that this currently happening between the Global North and Ghana.

This was my favourite quote: “I felt that London was kind of grim at the time, it wasn’t exactly a land of opportunity”. But Ghana was! And I have a great office mate for it!

Finally: TV journalist Nancy Kacungira who interviewed my colleague, was also the first recipient of the BBC World News Komla Dumor Award for Africa-based journalists, named after Ghanaian journalist Dumor.
