Abstract (EN)This paper investigates the importance and role of migration networks in Senegal usinga new nationally representative survey conducted in 2006-2007. Using a sample of 1707Senegalese households I explore potentially di erential e ects of networks on internationalmigration depending on their characteristics in terms of composition and destination. Resultsfrom logit and multinomial logit regressions show that household networks seem tobe destination-speci c and have a greater positive inuence on migration than communitynetworks. Networks also seem to have heterogeneous e ects on migration depending ongender, household wealth or size which is consistent with previous ndings in the literatureand backs up a networks e ects story.
