Question for written answer E-001572-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nadine Morano (PPE)

 Subject:  Conditionality of development aid
 Answer in writing 

The fight against illegal immigration in Europe requires the effectiveness of the returns of foreign nationals staying illegally to be strengthened. Such returns are often hampered by a lack of cooperation from countries of origin, which are sometimes reluctant to re-admit their nationals. Each year the EU and its Member States spend EUR 17 billion on development in Africa, and it seems appropriate to make this conditional on achieving tangible results in the area of migration. It is unacceptable for Africa to continue sub-contracting to Europe a large proportion of its young people (whom it abandons), despite the fact that they would be a considerable asset for the continent’s economic development.

I would like to ask the following:
1. Has the Commission considered creating a migration cooperation index which would enable, on the basis of harmonised criteria, the level of cooperation of countries of origin, and the development of that cooperation, to be assessed?
2. What action is the Commission taking and what initiatives will it take to make the granting of aid more conditional on tangible results in the fight against illegal immigration?
