Abstract

‘Refugee’ has become a highly mediatised concept that decisively structures the lives of forced migrants and appear in social and political milieu of many countries. In Europe, there is a major increase in refugee immigration each year. The EU-Africa summit on Migration in Valletta, 2015, announced the creation of an Emergency Trust Fund of 1.8 billion euros aimed at addressing the root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons from Africa. One of its defining clauses was to increase scholarships to Africans. In this paper, I examine what an ethic of care could offer to discussions about this policy and the impact of scholarship provisions to Africans. I consider the summit policies from the perspective of the politics of the ethic of care and I conclude by illustrating the tensions and possibilities the politics of the ethic of care may have on the perceptions and actions towards refugees.
