Chapter Summary

This chapter explains how the European Union (EU) imagines itself capable of creating a productive or win-win dynamic between the security oriented 'fight against illegal immigration', on the one side, and the growth and competitiveness oriented aspiration for a large-scale increase in 'legal' labour migration, on the other. From the early 1970s to the late 1990s the EU held firm to an official line of policy that unequivocally advised against any labour migration to the EU from non- OECD countries. From 2005 and onwards numerous EU-African declarations, partnerships and other cooperative frameworks have been planned for and created in order to establish a mutually beneficial 'management' of African migration. The development and tendencies that have been addressed must be analysed in direct relation to the diminishing weight assigned to social rights and incorporation within EU migration policy.

Keywords: EU-African declarations; European Union (EU) migration policy; illegal immigration; legal labour migration
