We find out more from Richard Danziger from the International Organisation of Migration in Dakar, Senegal, and Nicoletta Pirozzi from the Italian think-tank the Istituto Affari Internazionali. Also in the programme, Kenya and Somalia are in court to discuss who owns 100,000 square kilometres of sea bed, and any oil and gas that might be underneath.
