CONSULTATIONS: Security & border management – Schengen evaluation and monitoring mechanism
(Source: European Commission)
The Schengen evaluation mechanism is a key instrument to ensure that the countries participating in the EU’s border-free area correctly implement and apply the rules and regulations.
In light of unprecedented challenges faced by the Schengen area since 2015, the mechanism should be strengthened so that the Schengen area continues to function smoothly.
This initiative aims to make the procedure more efficient and allow a more flexible, targeted use of the instrument.
