Migration as a challenge or opportunity?

Migration is perceived differently in Africa and Europe. Subsequently also policies relating to migration management differ: containment vs. facilitation of legal migration. By lack of legal opportunities, the ongoing illegal migration out of Africa is greasing human trafficking maffias and contributes to enormous human suffering and deaths.

How can Africa and Europe work better together to prevent this ongoing tragedy and foster sustainable migration solutions? And note that not all African migrants go to Europe: most African migration stays within Africa or goes to the Gulf.
