Abstract

This panel explores the management of the EU’s external border from the point of view of legal and moral obligations of the EU as well as of its Members States towards Third Countries. The panel includes papers evaluating the “Safe Country” approach, which is spreading from the EU to other countries worldwide, as well as contributions discussing the attempts to further securitize the Mediterranean border, focussing on both NGO activities and Frontex. The panel hence delves into the developments, actors involved and challenges in the progressive strengthening of “Fortress Europe”.
