Schengen, free movement and crises

Zoom meeting
Links, effects and future challenges

This webinar addresses the relationship between Schengen and the free movement regime in the context of two crises:

  • the so-called 2015 migration crisis that led to the reintroduction of internal border controls to deal with pressures at the external borders of the EU, including secondary movements, and
  • the 2020 Covid-19 crisis that prompted the majority of Schengen states to reintroduce internal border controls as part of their efforts to contain the spread of the pandemic.

If crises are also productive moments that lead to new forms of governance and new practices, what sort of mobility regime is coming out of the 2015 and 2020 crises?

This event is part of CIMIS (Citizenship, Migration and Security), the CMR’s  Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence work programme 2018-2021. CIMIS is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union (contract number 599736-EPP-1-2018-1-NL-EPPJMO-COE).
