To those of you who believe Eurabia to be a cheap conspiracy, think again. The alliance of the European Union and North Africa called, Euro-Med, are very open about their intentions, read up on how this one German Eurabian university researcher bemoans the present situation, in which migration (south to north) is not going accordingly to plan.

The management of migratory policies was the focus of the Euro-Mediterranean Relations for 2010 symposium held in Tunis by the Mediterranean and International Studies Centre and the German Foundation Konrad Adenauer. Among the various speeches was one by Isabel Schafer, a Berlin University researcher who, in underscoring that Euro-Mediterranean cooperation concerning migratory flows was not at a satisfactory level, stressed the need for European Union countries to commit themselves to taking into account the importance of their “considerable development potential”.
She noted that the success of these policies would depend mostly on the measures adopted at a regional level and the making of the European public opinion aware of the advantages deriving from migration, especially considering its aging population. Professor Jamelledine Chichti, from the Sciences Faculty of the University of Tunis, stressed the “lack of a strategic vision” which ignores the potential of human capital which the southern shores of the Mediterranean have in abundance as well as the lack of “infrastructure ensuring lasting development”.
In his opinion, these are the main obstacles preventing the implementation of a partnership within the framework of “collective and shared action at the Mediterranean level”. The symposium also debated issues related to efforts to be made concerning regional integration and the need for a shared Euro-Mediterranean space to progressively better serve the interests of the region and to contain the effects of the international financial crisis.
