    Bishops in both Africa and Europe worried about “brain drain” from migration crisis

    • Nov 4, 2017

    Between 1980 and 2010, the number of African migrants living in Europe doubled, reaching 30.6 million people, according to a 2014 World Bank Report. That figure represented 3 percent of the continent’s total population. The bishops of both continents have proposed ways to stem the immigration tide – especially the “brain drain” of highly educated Africans – which they say will help the development of the African continent.
