Abstract: Drawing an unequivocal connection between migration and democracy has so far been an ignored field of African academic request. This is fairly astounding, since migration suggests key conversation starters to the meaning of democratisation. While huge numbers of the contemporary points in migration inquire about, for example, youth migration and youth's rights in governmental issues, all difficult the compartment model of the country state particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, can without much of a stretch be connected to bigger inquiries of democracy and majority rule advancement, this is once in a while done. However, the rise of migrants as political performing actors is one of the principle developments in the way democracy is standardised. Thinking around migration and democracy, this article analyse the blame lines between democracy and migration in connection to Malian youth in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Keywords: democracies; youth migration; disillusionment; weak and strong democracies.
