Nowadays, migrations are part of everyday life. People migrate short and long distances, in different ways and for different reasons. There is almost no society that has not yet been touched by migration, leading to a mixture of cultures and major social changes. In my master's thesis I was using semi-structured interviews for research on internal migration in Ghana, more specifically migration from rural to urban areas, which proved to be the most important form of migration in Ghana. This country is currently undergoing rapid urbanization due to the consequences of migration. Migration, as an inevitable consequence of economic development, has proven to be one of the biggest problems in developing countries, leading to social change in both urban and rural areas. Research has shown that rural-urban migration in Ghana most often takes place mainly out of a desire for better living conditions and is the result of spatial inequality in development stages. This means that migration takes place from resource deficient areas to areas with natural goods and adequate infrastructure. The main reasons for migration, however, are the search for better employment and education.
