Cultures of Border Control
University of Chicago Press

This chapter covers the (failed) selection of the Brussels culture of border control. Maastricht significantly reshaped the structure of the border control policy community. The high hopes that Maastricht had created had clearly not been fulfilled, leaving the fate of the Brussels culture of border control in limbo. In the years that followed the signing of the Maastricht Treaty, the importance of the external dimension of border control in shaping the Brussels culture's trajectory grew significantly. The Brussels border control policy community included all European Union (EU) members since the very launch of the initiative. In the 1990s, the EU border control policy community clearly drifted away from the liberal tenets that defined the Brussels culture of border control when it was launched a decade earlier. Instead, it moved closer to Schengen.
