Christoph Wenzel: Aus Flucht Kapital schlagen? Beobachtungen zum Mobilitätskapital afghanischer Binnenmigranten in Mazar-i Sharif, pp. 25-48

This article analyses the large-scale migration from Afghanistan’s rural areas to the cities. Political and economic insecurity in the migrants’ home regions contributes to this movement. By moving to urban areas, migrants hope to find safe(r) housing, work, health services, education and state or NGO support. This article considers to what extent the migrants – primarily poor rural dwellers – benefit from this re­location to towns, bearing in mind that their move is motivated by conditions in rural areas.
