Against European and Tunisian anti-migrant and anti-black policies

Article published in the Manifesto on 15 August 2023 in the Manifesto, and simultaneously in Mediapart and, in Arabic, in Nawaat, the open letter of 379 researchers and members of civil society".

While Tunisia's alignment with European outsourcing policies has long been established, we denounce the current dangerous turn in the acceptance of these policies and the racist assumptions underlying them. Tunisia is now showing its own will to reinforce a system of exclusion and exploitation of people from sub-Saharan Africa. Instead of denouncing this further racist escalation, based on a populist and conspiratorial discourse in the context of the authoritarian drift that the country is undergoing, European officials instrumentalise so-called irregular migration by presenting it as a 'common plague'. In an opportunistic and irresponsible manner, the EU consolidates the presidential discourse and fuels the anti-migrant and anti-black phobia, as well as conveying the image of a Europe that helps Tunisia protect its borders and not the European ones.

We express our full solidarity with all migrants and our rejection of hate speech on both sides of the Mediterranean. As academics and members of civil society working on these issues, we also wish to counter the misinformation being spread in Tunisia by some politicians, journalists and individuals claiming to be academics who are constructing racist arguments without any factual basis. There is an urgent need to question the reasons why vulnerable populations are being used as scapegoats to hide the failure of public policies in Tunisia.

1) No, sub-Saharan nationals are not a "plague" for Tunisia.

It was the declaration by the Presidency of the Republic on 21 February 2023, which referred to 'hordes of sub-Saharan migrants' threatening 'the demographic composition' of the country, that triggered violent attacks against black people, as well as arbitrary arrests, evictions and brutal dismissals. While several embassies organised repatriations, many fled by sea - at the same time there was a dramatic increase in shipwrecks, deaths or disappearances off the Tunisian coast. Several hundred people still sleep in front of the offices of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Tunis, demanding relocation or evacuation to safe countries.

At the beginning of July, these attacks intensified in Sfax, following the death of a Tunisian citizen, blamed on a sub-Saharan national, and shortly before the stabbing of a Beninese man. In a context where hate speech is still freely disseminated, Tunisian security forces intensified their raids in Sfax, deporting at least 1,200 sub-Saharan nationals to the borders with Libya and Algeria in militarised and inaccessible desert areas. Without water, without food, often badly beaten, many of them managed to get pictures of their suffering - a reality denied by the Home Office. To date, at least 20 deaths have been confirmed by various sources, although this is likely to be a gross underestimate.

Behind the racist categories of 'sub-Saharan', 'African' or 'irregular migrants', there are schoolgirls and students, workers, refugees and asylum seekers, people who have come for medical treatment or who have been waiting for years for a residence permit, as well as people who cannot leave the territory to renew their visas. The diversity of these people's paths and conditions, as well as their very humanity, is rendered invisible, leading to their further marginalisation and dehumanisation. Many of them are unable to regularise their situation because of an outdated and inconsistent legal framework and slow and complex administrative procedures. As is the case for many Tunisian migrants in Europe, the situation of migrants in Tunisia is made irregular by laws and practices that divide people from the African continent into 'desirable' and 'undesirable' migrants and criminalise a large proportion of its youth. In contrast, the irregular presence of Western migrants - which is very common in Tunisia due to the same bureaucratic dysfunctions - is not seen as a security problem.

Moreover, there is no evidence to support the claim that migrant workers are responsible for the deterioration of the Tunisian economy, as suggested by the xenophobic Vulgate. In reality, like many Tunisians, they are often exploited and exposed to food insecurity and vulnerability. Rather, the current economic crisis is caused by the lack of economic prospects, internationally supported austerity policies, the management of public debt or the inability of the state to reduce socio-economic inequalities.

2) No, the Memorandum with the EU does not protect Tunisian sovereignty.

In his public speeches, President Kaïs Saïed seems to be defending Tunisia's sovereignty, declaring that the country will not accept to become a "relocation country" for migrants expelled from Europe, nor a "transit or settlement country", nor to be reduced to the role of Europe's gendarme.

However, the Memorandum - in which the EU pledges financial support for border management - shows that the government continues to integrate the objectives of European policy by fully committing itself to the securitisation of the EU's borders. The president is following in the footsteps of his predecessors and may even go further in externalisation, as the agreement mentions 'a system for identifying and returning irregular migrants already in Tunisia to their country of origin'. This would suggest the development of the 'hotspot' approach, whereby migratory flows are managed at the EU's external borders, in countries such as Tunisia, and access to the European continent is completely prevented. While the government claims to reject the settlement of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa, the closure of the borders contributes to their confinement in Tunisia.

3) No, neither the Tunisian nor the European population will benefit.

As with the migration agreements signed before and after 2011, this memorandum was signed in a non-transparent manner, without parliamentary debate and without consultation with trade unions or civil society. Moreover, the memorandum does not contain any precise guarantees on respect for human rights or measures to control the use of donations to the Tunisian security forces.

The EU insists on giving Tunisia carte blanche, a strategy that is all the more irresponsible for being ineffective. As long as the structural socio-economic causes of so-called irregular migration are not addressed and access to mobility is not radically rethought, the securitarian approach will only make the crossings more deadly and strengthen the traffickers.

This memorandum will increase the asymmetry between the EU and Tunisia in terms of access to mobility and opportunities, contributing in particular to the so-called 'brain drain' and to economic models that fuel the causes of migration and inequality. The vague quid pro quo proposed by the EU such as visa facilitation and 'talent partnerships' are part of those promises made to Tunisia in the past that have never been kept. The externalisation of European borders thus affects all migrants considered 'undesirable' on the continent, Tunisian as well as other African countries.

On the other hand, the willingness expressed in the memorandum to 'preserve human life' is hardly credible, given that since 2014 some 27,000 people have died or gone missing in the Mediterranean, due to the same European policy that has withdrawn from sea rescues and effectively criminalised them.

The only way to truly protect the interests and dignity of Tunisian and African nationals present in the country is to activate channels for listening and constructive dialogue with the Tunisian and non-Tunisian populations affected by these policies, with the various associations representing them, and with social actors and research communities. These exchanges should contribute to the emergence of a collective reflection on alternative political solutions to the current deadly border management, recognising migration as a right and an asset for all.
