Cultures of Border Control
University of Chicago Press

This chapter evaluates the selection process within both initiatives, explaining why Schengen was successful and Brussels was not. An analysis of the incorporation of the Schengen regime into the European Union (EU) is also reported. Schengen balanced the apparently contradictory requirements of freedom and security, proved itself to be more effective in considering the relevant practical and political problems that European policy makers faced. An agreement on the integration of Schengen into the EU was eventually reached at the Amsterdam summit. The incorporation of the Schengen regime in the EU implied the Schengenization of the newly established “Area of Freedom, Security and Justice” in the EU. The political squabbling over the “ventilation” of the Schengen acquis represented the last instalment of the process leading to the selection of the Schengen culture of border control.
