Migration and mobility stimulate development as drivers of social and economic change, but they can also pose significant challenges. Our migration and mobility team wants to help maximise the development potential of migration and mobility while minimising risks, promote effective and human-centred migration governance in Europe and Africa, and contribute to improved Africa-Europe cooperation on migration.
