Prospective Migration Policy – Scenario Building on Relations Between West Africa and Europe
The Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) and the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK / GCR21) at the University of Duisburg-Essen have developed scenarios for migration flows between West Africa and Europe with the aim of providing a stimulus for further scientific research in this area, as well as making a constructive contribution to the political debate and offering potential approaches for a forward-looking and mutually beneficial migration policy. At three workshops held between June and November in Berlin, Dakar and Brussels, around 30 West African and European experts have developed scenarios using the Shell Method.
This book summarises the results of these three meetings. The scenarios are accompanied by short contributions by some of the participants who relate individual experiences and impressions in a variety of ways. The book contains an analysis of Mr. Balázs Orbán, Director General of the Migration Research Institute.
