Frontex and the EU Border Regime

Frontex and the EU Border Regime

Using modern technology and in cooperation with neighboring states the European Union tries to secure its external borders in an attempt to deter both criminal activity and illegal migration. Central actor is the border management agency Frontex. Who or what is Frontex? And what exactly does Frontex do? These are some of the questions the policy brief seeks to shed light on. At the same time it provides an overview of the development and central elements of the European border regime.
