THE EUROPEAN UNION’S MODEL ON INTEGRATED BORDER MANAGEMENT TO COMBAT TRANSNATIONAL ORGANIZED CRIME

  • Johann Wagner
Keywords: Integrated Border Management Model, transnational organized crime, European Union, border control, acquis communautaire

Abstract

In the 21st century, along with the process of globalisation, a constantly evolving security environment creates new dimensions of threats and challenges to security and stability of a trans-national nature. This seeks for comprehensive, multidimensional, collective and well-coordinated responses. The European Union and its specialised agencies, Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, United Nations, Interpol as well as other international organisations are able to really contribute in developing cooperative and coordinated responses to these threats by relying on its broad membership and profound expertise and experience. During the past 25 years, huge processes of changes and renewals of law enforcement management standards took place in relation to strategic security management, inter alia, after the fall of the Iron Curtain, and the immense challenges in nation-building in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. The abolition of border controls within the Union’s Schengen area and simultaneous introduction of necessary compensatory measures were additional challenges.
