Goal displacement: Migration policymaking in and about Afghanistan

Afghanistan is currently in the very early stages of preparing a comprehensive national migration policy. In spite of the significance of migration in Afghan cultural, economic, political and social life - this impulse comes, not from the Afghan government or civil society, but from Europe, specifically from European Union Member States such as Germany, who received many of the 250,000 Afghans who applied for asylum in Europe in 2015. Throughout much of 2016, the European Commission and the Afghan Government were negotiating an agreement that would force the Afghan government to reduce irregular migra-tion and facilitate force returns. At the same time, the International Centre for Policy Development has been driving forward the development of a Compre-hensive Migration Policy.

Perhaps inevitably the goals of Afghan migration policy are being set by Eu-ropean governments, who are in turn responding to domestic pressures and operating within particular ‘policy frames’. This paper explores the role played by the European Union and its Member States in shaping the migration policy of the Afghan government since the fall of the Taliban regime, but concentra-ting in particular on the past four years (2014-2018). This period covers the creation of the National Unity Government (NUG), the withdrawal of internatio-nal forces, a deterioration in the security and economic status of Afghanistan, a sharp rise in the number of people leaving the country and the so-called European Refugee Crisis, in which Afghans were the second largest group after Syrians, as well as the Brussels Conference and the implementation of the Joint Way Forward – an agreement that tied the delivery of further aid to cooperation in matters of migration.

Speaker: Dr Liza Schuster, City, University of London
