Senegal - Mali: New African Ports of Europe Under the influence of the European migratory protectionism, Senegal and Mali became, in the edge of the 2000s, spaces of convergence and\or transit of the African candidates for the expatriation northward. Such an evolution is the result of the politics of outsourcing the Schengen borders sanctioned by the signature, under the pressure of the European Union, of agreements of tighter control of traditional spaces of transit such as Northern Africa’s countries. By leaning on results of two fieldworks, the present communication aspires to appreciate the short story look which profoundly modified the plan and the modalities of the African western migration of the last five years. Part one of the text analyzes the evolution of the international migratory environment which led to the movement more in the South of the European borders and the opening of new roads towards Europe; Part two of the article tries to encircle the foundations of the craze always more marked with the Africans for the international exodus and the wild search for strategies of distortion structured around networks in perpetual renewal. Finally, the third and last part of the paper estimates, thanks to the West African experience, the euro-African policy of fight against irregular migration to indicate its limits for a wholesome reorientation.
