African and European parliamentarians have declared their shared expectations of how to support the attainment of peace, security and sustainable development. The Association of European Parliamentarians with Africa (AWEPA) recently organised an international parliamentary seminar on “Peace, Security and Sustainable Development” with a special focus on the role of African and European parliaments in tackling the root causes and consequences of violent extremism and terrorism.
ECDPM’s Volker Hauck was invited to sit on the panel of the working group ‘Tackling the consequences of terrorism and violent extremism: A focus on migration’. Here is a podcast of his opening remarks.
A declaration provided recommendations for ways forward in the respective countries and regions of the parliamentarians.
