Debate: European and African Perspectives on Migration and Democracy



This debate will provide young migrant scholars and activists from the Global South to present their perspectives on migration and democracy. While the topic has long been capturing headlines, the voices of African experts all too often receive not enough attention. What is their view on the EU’s externalization strategies? To what extent do democracy (or the lack thereof) and migration actually relate to one another? How to position vis-à-vis controversial agreements such as the UK-Rwanda deal to transfer asylum seekers to the African state? What do African activists and migration scholars suggest regarding the cooperation with the EU on migration issues in general?
