The EU will discreetly outsource migration management

Thursday, July 18, 2019

Subject

EU's migration policies towards North Africa.

Significance

A common European vision for migration management has gradually emerged that relies on third countries in North Africa and elsewhere to handle most aspects of migration management on the EU’s behalf.

Impacts

  • The Joint Declaration with Morocco on June 27 may provide the model for closer migration cooperation with other countries.
  • North African countries will develop more securitised borders and stronger legal frameworks to deal with migration and asylum issues.
  • Sahelian countries are also likely to be part of this EU strategy.
