AFRICAN EXODUS: Migration and the Future of Europe

ASFA-WOSSEN ASSERATE    Book Number: 87697    Product format: Paperback

Cambridge educated author Asserate is a member of the Imperial House of Ethiopia, who became a refugee in 1974 after the overthrow of the monarchy. He works as a consultant for African and Middle Eastern affairs and as a political analyst in Germany where he has lived for the last 40 years. He is a biographer of Emperor Haile Selassie I. Amid the hysteria and distortions that surround immigration, this book presents a sober and authoritative account of migration from Africa and manages with some verve to unearth central and crucial insights. It is a powerful book encapsulating first-hand experience with bold statistics, giving testimony to the claim that we are facing the greatest refugee crisis of our age. By 2050, Africa's population is projected to have doubled and already the UN is reporting a 20% year-on-year growth in the number of refugees within Africa. For many of Africa's economically strained nations, consequences could be catastrophic. Asserate argues that the failure of European nations to confront this seismic demographic shift will result in greater instability, widespread unemployment, and the entrenchment of poverty across the continent. Migration to Europe across the Mediterranean will dramatically increase over time. Why does the European view of Africa remain so distorted? What can Europe do to combat the corrupt authoritarian regimes that stymie progress and development? Why are European governments sleepwalking into crisis? 199pp in softback.
