Résumé
This paper explores and analyses the effects of securitisation employed by the EUCAP Sahel Niger Mission on migrants, local communities and the overall stability of the country. The EU has severely endangered the human security, but also the overall stability of the Agadez region through its progressing measures of securitisation, conflating smuggling with terrorism and trafficking networks. It is more than apparent that a neglect of the linkages of the security-developmentmigration nexus in a specific country setting, like Niger, lead to undesired outcomes and possibly even to a destabilisation of the region. Going forward the EU will need to gain a better understanding of this nexus and its underpinning assumptions to successfully implement its policies in Niger, but also other countries targeted by the EU Neighbourhood Policies.
