Thursday, July 18, 2019


EU's migration policies towards North Africa.


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.


  • 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.
