This policy brief identifies changing trends in Africa-EU migration relations under the 2007 Joint Africa–EU Strategy, the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa and the outcomes from the 2015 Valletta Summit on Migration.

Ahead of the fifth AU–EU Summit in November 2017, this policy brief identifies changing trends in Africa-EU migration relations under the 2007 Joint Africa– EU Strategy (JAES), the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF) and the outcomes from the 2015 Valletta Summit on Migration. It also examines bilateral Africa–EU relations against the broader backdrop of the UN Global Compact for Migration (GCM) and the ongoing international discussions on a global framework for migration management that seek to normalise and regularize migration to Europe through policy interventions across the continent. The brief concludes with recommendations that reflect key policy issues for the upcoming AU–EU Summit.
