Farewell interview with Ton Dietz

Ton Dietz will retire as the director of the African Studies Centre Leiden on 1 September 2017. On this occasion, we did a ‘farewell’ interview with him. Ton shares his thoughts on migration: 'We fool ourselves in a very dangerous way if we think that supporting economic growth (...) will curb migration. It’s the other way round.' And: 'Not preparing the Dutch or European population of what is to come, is foolish and politically dangerous.' Read the full interview.
