IES Professors Ilke Adam and Florian Trauner contribute to a study analyzing the West African interests in (EU) migration policy

It’s well known what the EU wants in migration policy. Yet, what are the genuine interest of the EU’s partner states in the very same field? IES Professors Ilke Adam and Florian Trauner contributed to a study analyzing the West African interests in (EU) migration policy. It draws upon more than 80 interviews and four months of fieldwork in Ghana and Senegal. The study derives from the project ‘African Migration: Root Causes and Regulatory Dynamics’ (AMIREG)’, which was collaboratively realized by the IES and the United Nations University - Institute for Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS) in Bruges. UNU-CRIS funding for the work is gratefully acknowledged. The article is open-access, hence freely available at the journal’s website.
