Sustainable Migration from Africa to Europe: EMN Roundtable Briefing Paper


Download File

The European Migration Network (EMN) online Roundtable on ‘Sustainable Migration from Africa to Europe’ took place on 9 December 2020. It explored how to define and operationalise the concept of ‘sustainable migration’ by considering the whole-of-route approach from countries of origin to destination. By bringing together policymakers, researchers and practitioners representing different sectors and perspectives, the event fostered a better understanding of how to design sustainable migration policies that work for Europe and for third countries.

Panels reflected upon the meaning of ‘sustainable migration’ and the New EU Pact on Migration and Asylum, trends in mixed migration flows from Africa to Europe and the nexus between protection and development.
