A Joint Endeavour: Shaping Migration from Africa to Europe

Annual Report 2020

April 2020

The SVR 2020 Annual Report analyses migration movements within Africa and from Africa to Europe and Germany, shedding light on the causes of migration from Africa and considering the consequences migration can have for African countries of origin. Based on this analysis, the report identifies migration policy options for Germany and the EU, discussing potential ways of managing migration for work and education, preventing irregular migration and improving protection for refugees. The report also reviews current return policies and discusses how local diaspora organisations could be better supported.
