The EU’s ‘Eurafrica’ roots – Opinion – Al Jazeera English

On the surface, this looks like a good deal for Africa. PanAf (as the initiative is referred to) will contribute to increased mobility within the continent as well as between Europe and Africa. For instance, student exchange programmes will enable African students to pursue academic interests in Europe. African nations will have easier access to STIs (Science, Technology and Innovation), and labour mobility will be facilitated.

And why would Africa turn down a partner that won a Nobel Peace Prize for its “pursuit of peace and human dignity,” as President of the European Council Van Rompuy put it in his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech for the supranational organisation? Why would Africa not want to associate with a political union that is on the forefront of developments in anti-climate change action, medical research and strengthening democracy?
