Between Paradise and Prison – Senegalese Migrants and the Response of the European Union

by Dr. Stefan Gehrold, Matthias Bunk
It has become an everyday occurrence to see boats full of African migrants being met by coast guards. The two affected countries, Italy and Spain, are asking other EU states to show their support by taking in some of these African refugees. In order to avoid uncontrolled and unsustainable migration to Europe and to promote the development of human resources in Africa, it is crucial to strengthen the European-African partnership. Senegal is playing a key role in this process.
