Crises in South Sudan and the Horn of Africa
Crises in South Sudan and the Horn of Africa – Key Factors for Migration
As Ambassador Rondos had pointed out in his last talk at the Bruno Kreisky Forum, a ’Necklace of Crises and Terror’ stretched around Europe, from Mauritania and Mali to the South Sudan, the Horn of Africa and beyond. This threat to European security has now turned out to be a main factor of African migration to Europe, but also within Africa.
