We want EU and Africa addressing the root causes of migration

Without addressing the root causes of forced displacement such as conflicts, poverty and underdevelopment, the phenomenon of migration will only intensify in the future. Despite two decades of economic growth, Africa is facing security challenges and regional instability. It is confronting increased social inequalities and poverty, corruption, lack of good governance, fundamental freedoms, and quality education, as well as wide-spread environmental degradation. This has led to a growing number of migrants and refugees coming from Africa to Europe. We need more efficient cooperation between EU and African countries of origin and transit in order to overcome the current challenges of migration management. And the EU must take resolute steps to enact a Marshall Plan for Africa that can address the root causes of migration and deliver tangible improvements in Africa. We must work together with African partners towards effective use of development cooperation, conflict resolution, and stimulate inclusive and sustainable economic growths to give opportunities to Africans in their countries of origin. Migration must be safe and legal, migrants and refugees must have their dignity and fundamental rights respected and the fight against human traffickers must be stepped up. The far-right and populist forces are building walls and spread hate and division. We stand for equal and fair partnerships between EU and Africa through win-win approaches, and support the efforts of the African partners, which host the overwhelming majority of African migrants and refugees, to better manage migration flows, also internally. We are extending our hand in cooperation to civil society and everyone who is ready to join us in this joint effort.
