“Europe must be an effective partner for Africa in the effort of strengthening continental unity and institutions that enable free expression and meet development challenges“
– Archbishop Gabriel Anokye
The 4th EU-Africa-summit (April 2-3) has caused reactions from CIDSE partners SECAM (Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar), in an op-ed in the European Voice magazine by SECAM Vice-President Archbishop Gabriel Anokye, titled One hand cannot tie a package. SECAM has also issued a Position Paper on the EU-Africa-summit.
CIDSE’s German member organisation MISEREOR has also issued a statement demanding a more humane refugee policy from the EU on the occasion of the summit.
