Western trade barriers and agricultural protectionism cause Africa to lose twice as much as it receives in development aid each year. In addition, tyrants are courted. It is precisely those the continent so desperately needs for its development who turn their backs on their homeland and thus aggravate the situation there. According to Asserate, Europe should treat Africa as a partner and specifically support those countries that build democratic structures and invest in their youth. This is the only way to enable Africans to create a humane future on their continent.
