This chapter explores the extent to which the European Union's (EU) migration dialogue with African countries has impacted on its relations with the continent. It argues about the constraints EU faces in conducting migration dialogue and coherently implementing migration-related initiatives despite the rapid development of the external dimension of the EU's migration policy and its focus on Africa. The chapter describes the major developments in EU-Africa migration dialogue and reviews Africa's views on migration. African governments generally agree with the need to coordinate migration agendas and have been willing to engage in dialogue with the EU, provided this considers the concerns of both origin and destination countries. It analyses the EU's capacities and constraints in formulating an effective and coherent approach to cooperation with migrant-sending countries.
