Regional Challenges of West African Migration

African and European Perspectives

image of Regional Challenges of West African Migration

This publication presents contributions by international experts on various aspects of West African migration. It provides a contrasting perspective to current debates which essentially focus on security issues. This rather non-institutional approach promotes a constant dialogue based on analyses of the actual situation: the authors encourage "win-win" mobility for all parties involved (Europe, North Africa and West Africa), whether it be a host, transit or departure country.

There are at least two reasons that 2006 can be considered a transitional year for illegal migration from Sub-Saharan Africa. In fact, in 2006, almost four times as many migrants reached the Canary Archipelago off the Moroccan coast as compared to 2002, the year which was thought to be a historical peak since the current migration phenomena started in 1989/1990. So contrary to belief, the “migration stock” does not seem to have run out of steam.
