Afrique-Europe-Interact is a small, transnationally organised network that was founded in early 2010. It consists of grassroots activists mainly from Mali, Togo, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands – many of them self-organised refugees, migrants and people who were deported.
Politically speaking, Afrique-Europe-Interact has two main goals: one is to publicly criticise and shame the EU migration policies; the other is to draw attention to the structural reasons for flight and migration and therefore the demand for fair and self-determined development. The right to global movement and settlement is only one side of the coin. What is equally important is the right to stay – that is, the possibility to live a secure, dignified and self-determined life in one’s home country/country of origin.
