African Continental Integration and the migration question

The paper dwells on the issue of African -EU migration.It examines how the new African Continental Free Trade Agreement may help facilitate african development and free movement of persons across the continent.The paper posits that many EU countries have historical responsibility for African underdevelopment and hence must not shy away from the consequences such as migration to Europe from former African colonies.The paper also posits that this doesn't,however, doesnt excuse or detract African leadership from from the responsibility of good governance.It is a case of Common but differentiated Responsibility.One means by which this may be assured is to join hands in ensuring that the integration of objectives of African Continental Free Trade Agreement are realised.
