How does the EU cooperate with Africa on migration?

On the basis of its Global Approach to Migration and Mobility (GAMM) – the overarching framework of the EU external migration and asylum policy – the EU is engaged in a broad dialogue with countries on the African continent on migration and mobility at bilateral, regional and continental levels: 

1. Continental level, with the African Union (AU). A key political declaration on migration and mobility was endorsed by the Heads of State and Government at the EU-Africa Summit in April 2014. It reiterated the parties’ shared commitment to, amongst others, fight irregular migration and to address all its relevant aspects, including prevention, strengthened migration and border management, return and readmission, as well as addressing the root causes of irregular migration. The above mentioned declaration is underpinned by an Action Plan (2014-17), and the necessary financial resources.

2. Regional level, with policy dialogues with countries along the western migratory route (Rabat Process) and the eastern migratory route (Khartoum Process). These dialogues are underpinned by concrete action plans and financial resources. The EU has also launched the new Regional Development and Protection Programmes (RDPPs) in North Africa and the Horn of Africa.

3. Bilateral level, with a wide range of programme and project support, that aim to contribute to institutional and legislative reforms and capacity building in partner countries, as well as specific political agreements concluded with Morocco, Tunisia, Cape Verde and Nigeria, and another to be signed in the margins of the Valletta Summit with Ethiopia. These political agreements are supported by concrete EU funded actions.
In addition, cooperation with African countries takes place within the Africa Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Partnership Agreement signed in Cotonou in June 2000. In June 2012 the ACP-EU Council endorsed three sets of recommendations on (a) visas, (b) remittances and (c) readmission. The ACP-EU Council of Ministers in May 2015 endorsed also recommendations on stepping up the fight against trafficking in human beings and smuggling of migrants. (RAPID, MEMO/15/6026, 9.11.2015)

Los Estados frágiles: un desafío urgente para la política exterior de la UE
Fride. Working paper # 126. 2015
Se estima que un cuarto de los países del mundo son “frágiles”, en tanto que sufren de una mala gobernanza y pobreza crónica, además de ser propensos al conflicto. La fragilidad estatal es un desafío urgente para la política exterior de la UE. Por un lado, porque gran parte de los Estados frágiles se encuentra en la amplia vecindad europea, desde África Occidental hasta Europa del Este y Asia Central, pasando por Oriente Medio. Y, por otro, debido al fuerte compromiso de la UE de elaborar políticas de desarrollo más eficaces alrededor del mundo. Este documento de trabajo analiza los factores globales que llevan a la fragilidad estatal –como la competición por los recursos naturales, el crecimiento demográfico y el cambio climático– y que probablemente se intensificarán en los próximos años, y examina los diferentes tipos de Estados frágiles, que pueden ser países de renta media o Estados mucho más pobres.[+]

La Comisión Europea ha puesto en marcha la primera fase de un nuevo programa que apoyará el proceso de integración continental de África, el cual será el primer programa de cooperación y desarrollo de la UE que abarque el continente africano en su conjunto. El llamado Programa Panafricano financiará actividades en ámbitos muy variados y ofrecerá nuevas posibilidades de cooperación entre la UE y África. Tras la decisión de hoy, se pondrá en marcha proyectos para el período 2014-2017 con una dotación total de 415 millones EUR.

El Programa Panafricano, que anunció el presidente Barroso en la 4ª Cumbre África-UE celebrada en Bruselas en abril de 2014, ascenderá a 845 millones EUR entre 2014 y 2020. Contribuirá, entre otras cosas, a facilitar una mayor movilidad en el continente africano, a mejorar las relaciones comerciales entre las regiones y también a preparar mejor a ambos continentes para abordar desafíos transnacionales y mundiales como la migración y la movilidad, el cambio climático o la seguridad. La primera fase, puesta en marcha hoy, incluye proyectos que van desde la agricultura sostenible, el medio ambiente y la educación superior hasta la gobernanza, las infraestructuras, la migración, las tecnologías de la información y las comunicaciones, la investigación y la innovación.

African and European universities face similar challenges: the need to modernise, provide relevant curricula and offer students more opportunities to broaden their skills to increase job prospects. These issues will be among the themes addressed by Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, at a meeting with representatives of 60 African universities in Brussels tomorrow, 27 March. The 'African Higher Education Harmonisation and Tuning' event, jointly organised by the European Commission and African Union Commission, focuses on student mobility, recognition of qualifications and credits, as well as the development of new and joint degree programmes. Over the next seven years, it is envisaged that the new Erasmus+ programme will provide grants for 25 000 African students and academics to study or train in Europe, and around 2 750 African researchers will receive support from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
