Areas of law:

25 years ago, in 1985, five EU member states signed the Schengen Agreement removing systematic border controls between their countries. Today, the Schengen area consists of 25 European countries, the latest entrant being Switzerland.

The enlarged Schengen area has given rise to numerous new challenges for the protection of the EU's internal and external borders including:
  • the setting-up of a second generation for the Schengen Information System (SIS II) and the idea of an Agency for large-scale IT systems;
  • the establishment of common centres of police and customs cooperation to assist with cross-border surveillance, hot pursuit, joint patrols and other joint operations under the Schengen Convention;
  • the strengthening of FRONTEX operational capacities by introducing regional-based offices, Joint Support Teams, joint operations, return cooperation;
  • measures for a ‘European Integrated Border Management’ such as an entry/exit system, a European Border Patrols Network, and a European Border Surveillance System (EUROSUR);
  • new electronic technologies to ensure border control (ABC).
Together with representatives of the respective EU agencies, national police officers and border guards, this seminar will look at the development of the Schengen Acquis and present and discuss its challenges today.
