While European countries are distracted by what to do when migrants arrive, I ask why more emphasis is not being placed on stemming migration at the root cause.
Sub-Saharan African nations account for eight of the 10 fastest growing international migrant populations since 2010. Conflict is of course the biggest driver of this phenomenon, but as French President Macron rightfully recognized on a recent trip to Nigeria, poverty and unemployment are playing an increasing role in uprooting people from their homes.
He commented that more Africans need to succeed in Africa. So how can this be done?
