THE ROLE OF THE AFRICAN UNION IN THE REGULATION OF EDUCATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL MOBILITY ON THE AFRICAN CONTINENT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE XXI CENTURY

Annotation

The African Union policy in the field of regulation the scientific and professional mobility on the African continent at the beginning of the XXI century is reviewed. Through the analysis of the problem such key factors as the reduction of socio-economic and political situation in many African countries, a high level of unemployment, poor working conditions and human rights violation, leading to high rates of emigration of local specialists are considered. By concrete examples the desire of the African Union to systematize the processes of cultural, economic, social and political integration on the continent, in particular through the promotion of intellectual migration in the areas of education, healthcare, industry and science is shown. Attention is paid to the policy initiatives and actions on prevention of the process of the “brain drain” and bringing a highly skilled workforce to the region. Achieved results and evaluated further prospects of socio-economic development of Africa are analyzed.
