Abstract:This study focusses on the European perspective of the change of the European cooperation with Africa. Based on the language in the European policy documents, a content analysis is conducted. The asked research question is 'A European perspective: How did the European African cooperation change between 2003 and 2016?' Furthermore, two hypotheses are analysed based on the literature. The first hypothesis is that, the focus of the European African cooperation was on the economic factors of the cooperation in 2003. Whereas the second hypothesis finds that, the focus of the European African cooperation was on the securitization of the cooperation in 2016. The unit of analysis are the analysed documents: European Security Strategy and European Union Global Strategy. The content analysis and a longitudinal study, showed that both hypothesis were rejected. Instead a change of cooperation occurred in the type of securitization. The focus of the cooperation in 2003, is on combatting the immediate threats. Contrary to the focus of 2016, which is on the core of the threats and to implement policies on migration in order to combat the threats.
