The Future of Schengen: Failures, Challenges and Perspectives
On 16 April a debate under the title "The Future of Schengen: Failures, Challenges and Perspectives" will be organised in the city of Luxembourg by the Luxembourg section of the Union of European Federalists (UEF) in collaboration with the UEF European Secretariat and the Young European Federalists (JEF Europe) and hosted by M. Guy Berg, Director of the European Commission Delegation in Luxembourg.

The debate will be divided in two consecutive sessions, where the federalist perspective will be confronted with the current threats to the Schengen Agreement, the management of the EU common external borders, and the main challenges facing the European integration project today:

• The costs of non-Schengen: how the re-establishment of internal border controls threatens the economic, social and political future of the European Union;

• Schengen and the EU external border: how migration flows from outside the European Union challenge the limits of Schengen and the future of European foreign and defence policy.

A translation English-French and French-English will be provided to facilitate the debate. For more information consult the Opens internal link in current windowevent's page.
