Do good neighbours make good fences? Migration in the Trans-European space

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic

Abstract

In this chapter, the author considers the politics of migration in the trans-european space. The eu has a great impact on all the other actors in this space, since it is the principal ‘regulator’. The chapter offers the recipients’ perspective by considering domestic politics and preferences of the non-eu countries vis-à-vis the eu external migration policy. The eu assumes that ‘good neighbours make good fences’ and promotes cooperative relations with partner countries with the intention of managing migration flows across europe and beyond. However, when analysing seven countries (in eastern europe and the southern mediterranean), reslow finds that eu policies may have unintended effects in specific national contexts, especially in situations of instability and conflicts. Apparently, the eu-led migration governance may only create cooperative links across the surrounding spaces. There are many reasons to believe that fractures can emerge along this policy, creating divisions and tensions.
