Schengen: from resistance to resilience?

24/04/2018 Regular predictions announcing the "death of the Schengen area" have been rather excessive, if not meaningless. Indeed, they echo the high tension that opposes the 26 countries sharing this area, notably becoming clear during the massive influx of refugees in 2015-2016 and then during the terrorist attacks of the last few years. Tension like this is symptomatic of a double crisis, whose causes must be identified to provide effective remedy: an often-mentioned solidarity crisis between the States of the EU, but also a confidence crisis, which reflects the difficulty in sharing a so-called area "without internal borders."

A European Momentum

09/04/2018 According to Jean-Dominique Giuliani, Chairman of the Robert Schuman Foundation in 2018 "Europe gather momentum" - enjoying an exceptional opportunity for the European Union to recover. After a crisis of doubt and economic difficulties which led to the disaffection of its citizens, Europe has now made its return to the international arena. It economy is now producing promising results, it is resisting populism and remains an area of unique stability and prosperity. Now able to assert its assets, it has to rise to the challenges of immigration, security and governance. In these three areas some Member States, even in a limited number, must set the example of cooperating decisively together, remaining open to those who want to join them.

Democracy, Secularity and Religious Freedom: which balance is there in France and Europe?

Democracy, secularity and religious freedom? These questions now bear a European dimension. After the terrorist attacks in several EU Member States, these events either unite or divide. Solidarity and unity must win the day but it is to be feared that these recent tragedies have heightened division even further within several countries of Europe.

Immigration: information file

08/09/2015 The repeated drownings in the Mediterranean have led to an emergency situation regarding the European migratory question. According to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), more than 1,750 migrants perished in the Mediterranean between January and April 2015, ie more than 30 times the figure in the same period in 2014. Given these repeated catastrophes an extraordinary European Council was organised on 23rd April and ten new measures were put forward on 20th April by the European Commission including stepping up surveillance operations and rescue at sea. The Robert Schuman Foundation is offering its readers an information file on the theme of immigration, that brings together its publications on this issue in order to review the development of these events in Europe.
