FEPS, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung EU Office and Fondation Jean-Jaurès have established a new group of migration experts from Africa and Europe, the Progressive Migration Group, chaired by Anna Terron Cusi, that will continue exploring the relations and cooperation between the European Union and the countries of origin and transit, with the aspiration of abandoning the prevailing stagnant narratives surrounding migration, and above all with the ambition of formulating innovative recommendations and policy proposals for progressive forces at the EU and national levels in the field of migration management as well as in other policy areas that have an impact on migration causes and flows.

In particular, the project will focus on the ways these complex relations have been interpreted and translated into policies by the EU institutions mostly aimed to curb (irregular) migration by externalising migration control and management. This is a component of EU policy that is still prevailing also in the (New) Pact for Asylum and Migration, whose proposals are now the objects of negotiations at the EU level. The Progressive Migration Group will try to formulate alternative migration schemes between Africa and Europe, that take on board this deeper understanding of this nexus.
