Halting migration ambitions by implementing developments initiatives has been part of the ‘s external toolbox since the adoption of the Global Approach for Migration and Mobility (Deridder, Pelckmans, Ward 2020, 13). With the “migration crisis” of 2015, the number of policy initiatives to try and stem departures from countries of origin multiplied and aid to African countries became increasingly conditional upon cooperation on migration matters (Schofberger, 2019). The EU-Africa Valletta Summit and the creation of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa identified West Africa as one of the prime regions of focus for projects that found themselves on the so-called migration-development-security nexus.
