EVENT Africa Week

Find out more on AFRICA WEEK and our priorities.

The S&D Group Africa Week is a series of political and cultural events aimed at celebrating Africa-EU relations and discussing ways to give them new directions. A more mature and contemporary Africa-EU partnership can help us address the global challenges we face. Together we can strengthen democracy and human rights, and foster sustainable economic and human development in our societies.

Good co-ordination of the EU's external policies is vital if we want to make the most of the global opportunities we are presented with and be a responsible actor on the international stage.

Migrants

Vast numbers of undocumented migrants and asylum seekers have arrived in Europe in 2015. More than 800.000 are estimated to have arrived by the Mediterranean so far this year. With a count surpassing 40.000 deaths since 2000, IOM defines this phenomenon as “an epidemic of crime and abuse" (source: http://missingmigrants.iom.int/). At the same time, this crisis has stirred up a heated debate as the European countries struggle to cope with several issues concerning: integration, human rights, economy, juridical matters and internal cooperation.
