CEPS Policy Brief No. 154, March 2008
On 13 February 2008, the European Commission presented a new 'Border Package', setting out its vision of how to foster the further management of the EU's external border. In assessing the desirability and feasibility of the new system, CEPS JHA specialists find the Commission's proposal ill-considered and likely to have substantial counterproductive effects on the ground. They expect it to create the same sort of public relations problems as do similar US measures among a travelling public that finds itself increasingly the object of state suspicion, with no concrete reason or grounds.
