On 26 March the British-German Association and the German Embassy welcomed HIH Prince Dr. Asfa-Wossen Asserate and David Goodhard for a discussion on African migration to Europe in the 21st century and the importance of developing a new joint European policy towards Africa.

Dr. Asfa-Wossen Asserate and Goodhard analysed the reasons of growing mass migration, addressed the difficulties of foreign aid given to the African continent and called for a new European trade policy towards Africa.

Dr. Asfa-Wossen Asserate proposed a more forceful foreign policy which should include withholding aid from autocratic regimes.

The evening was opened by Chargé d’Affaires a.i. Tania Freiin von Uslar-Gleichen and publisher Dr. Barbara Haus-Schwepcke of Haus Publishing.

The discussion was moderated by The Hon. Stephen Watson, chairman of British-German Association.
