The EU's security actorness and the area of freedom, security and justice: Assessing the external dimension of the internal rationale

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter aims to contribute to a broader discussion on the European Union's external dimension of the internal security actorness, arguing that the EU has been progressively evolving from politicisation to securitization and militarization in the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ). In fact, if we look closely to both the European agenda on Security and on Migration (2015), and compare those newly documents with the 2010 Internal security strategy, the Stockholm Programme, the 2003 European Security Strategy or the 2008 implementation report, the external dimension of the internal security of the EU was deeply strengthen to address the changing security environment. The recent cases of the EUNAVFOR Med and the border management enforcement both from the EU's agencies and member states illustrate this argument. Therefore, we will argue that member states must identify concrete deliverables to translate the security actorness of the European Union into a proper common immigration and asylum policy, which implies a comprehensive approach shaped by a normative conception of solidarity and institutional cooperation.
