September 17, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
About this Event
This is a Zoom Event. Please REGISTER HERE
While the 2015 migratory crisis has impacted the relations between Africa and Europe until now, the COVID-19 crisis has demonstrated how reliant European Union’s economies are on migrant workers. The pandemic has also highlighted the existing skills shortage in Africa resulting from labour migration. It is therefore urgent to open a frank discussion among stakeholders on migration and mobility in order to ensure a true win-win cooperation on these issues.
The events are meant to increase the share of voice for African private sector, civil society and diaspora organisations in the framework of the upcoming Summit. They are designed to discuss the ability to align Africa and European priorities, provide a set of recommendations and deliver on the narrative of a renewed Africa-Europe relationship, which focuses on moving away from dependency towards partnership. As European institutions have engaged negotiations with African partners in view of jointly endorsing a new comprehensive EU strategy with Africa at the Summit, the events will cover five themes of relevance for a true and fair partnership between Africa and Europe: debt, migration, trade & investment, climate, and youth.
