Chapter 9: Schengen and internal border controls

Migration / BOOK
Marie De Somer

Date: 11/12/2019

Marie De Somer critically reviews the state of affairs in the Schengen zone. She highlights that the EU’s free movement area has not been border control-free for over four years and provides reflections on three different scenarios that could sketch the way forward. The chapter warns against introducing further conditionality links between Schengen and Dublin as this could worsen the already apparent spillover of the Dublin crisis into the Schengen zone, at the expense of the latter. 

This chapter is part of the publication ‘From Tampere 20 to Tampere 2.0: Towards a new European consensus on migration’, which takes stock of the EU’s migration and asylum policies 20 years after the historic 1999 Tampere European Council conclusions. It argues that solidarity and the implementation of common policies are the two building blocks for a new European consensus on migration. The book is the final result of a year-long research project conducted by the European Policy Centre together with Odysseus Academic Network, European Migration Network Finland and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.
