The Schengen evaluation mechanism and the legal basis problem: breaking the deadlock
31 January 2012
Yves Pascouau (Senior Adviser to EPC on migration and mobility policies)

One of the immediate effects of the Arab Spring was the launch of intense discussions about 'Schengen governance'. While the package of proposals presented by the European Commission has opened a new debate regarding the possibility of reintroducing internal border checks, it has revived an 'old' proposal to make evaluating the implementation of Schengen rules more efficient. In this Policy Brief, Yves Pascouau proposes some solutions in order to move forward.

Janis A. Emmanouilidis (Director of Studies) and Fabian Zuleeg (Chief Executive and Chief Economist)

In early 2012 the situation looks better than it has for a while, but the crisis recovery still remains very fragile. In this Commentary, Fabian Zuleeg and Janis A. Emmanouilidis argue that the euro zone is caught in a Catch 22, as multiple parallel crises often require contradictory responses. National reform efforts and fiscal prudence are indispensable but they do not produce a decisive break from the downward spiral.

Serban Chiorean-Sime (Former Programme Assistant at the EPC) and Annika Hedberg (Head of Sustainable Prosperity for Europe programme and Senior Policy Analyst)
