Contemporary international society goes through rapid transformations, including migratory flows on a greater scale than experienced hitherto. The African and the European Union have claimed joint responsibility in treating the root causes of migration by instigating development in sending countries. With the current pace, the common goal of reducing migration is far from being reached and new grounds for political cooperation are needed. The Unions’ different approaches to migration and development, within the spectrum of positive and pessimistic theory, witness great challenges of being united and greater precaution on addressing ideological divergence is required for successful cooperation. Identification of migratory flows, reflecting the interaction between social, financial and human capital is concurrently vital to reduce migration. For political action to keep up with the complexity of globalization, cooperation between the Unions asks for a pluralist perspective to have considerable influence on the future of migration and development.
