Joint appeal from African and European Bishops, to help stop the ‘brain drain’ from Africa.


In a joint statement issued by the Commission of Bishops’ Conferences in the European Union (COMECE) and the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM), published in advance of the African Union and European Union Summit, to be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, from November 28 to 29, African and European Bishops call on African and European political leaders to work together in order to give young Africans a future through job creation and expectations about an adequate environment for sustainable development.
They share the fact that the fight against human trafficking is not separated from offering young African people the opportunity to develop their own life on their continent.
