ADEPT is the Africa-Europe Diaspora Development Platform, a pan-European network established in 2017 and based in Brussels.



Our vision is a world where Africa, its people, and its diaspora are empowered and transformed.

Our three-pronged strategic approach:

We empower African Diaspora Development Organisations (ADDOs) through our technical, financial and trainings support.

We amplify the voice of the African Diaspora through our media campaigns, our e-magazine and our events.

We solidify the position of the diaspora as a key player for Africa’s development, through our policy and advocacy work.

Strengthening the link between Migration and Development:

We hold a seat on the International Steering Committee of the Global Forum on Migration and Development Civil Society (GFMD)

We represent the African diaspora on the Remittance Community Task Force (IFAD) and within the Joint Africa-EU Strategy’s Civil Society Steering Group.

Latest News & Events


We have a network of over 200 African diaspora organisations and individuals based in Europe. Bridging the gap between the two continents, ADEPT members are active in EU and AU member states, as well as in Norway, Switzerland, and the UK.
