Selecting a New Culture of Border Control: Schengen

(p.91) Five Selecting a New Culture of Border Control: Schengen
Cultures of Border Control
University of Chicago Press

This chapter concentrates on Schengen, and in particular on the developments in four areas that characterized the policymaking process over the issue of border control in this period: internal political dynamics, institutional issues, external relations, and the organization of the border control community. Practices of the Schengen border control community became more consistent with the main tenets of the pursued culture. The debate over the “preliminary conditions” during the negotiations over Schengen is addressed. The controversial diplomatic exercises of Italy and Denmark contributed to the further “testing” of the emerging Schengen culture of border control. The securitarian outlook that Schengen acquired over time had consequences not only for the national delegations represented at Schengen, but also for the European Commission.

Keywords:   border control, border control community, Schengen, policymaking, Italy, Denmark, national delegations, European Commission
