Cape Verde: On foreign policy and diaspora

Miguel Cruz Sousa [pt] analyzes the Cape Verdean foreign policy and the country's relationship with its diaspora. “Unemployment, social inequality, insecurity, low wages and the risk of disruption prevail here in the country. In the diaspora, there are persecution, discrimination, employment insecurity, unemployment, xenophobia and discrimination, arbitrary arrests and indifference of the Cape Verdean government; There is double exclusion, in the real meaning of the word, from the host countries and from the birth place of more than 900 thousand Cape Verdeans who live and work in over 25 countries around the world”.
