Abstract

The paper looks at harmonization of immigration and asylum policies in the new Central European Member States of the EU with the Schengen Acquis, the new legacy of immigration and asylum, and the institutional practice towards new migrants. The author argues that the European integration process has been dominated by the deployment of repressive security measures, while admission policies in the NMS-10 have not been given sufficient legal, institutional and financial support from the EU-15, and have remained underdeveloped. As a result, the NMS-10, where an effective Europeanized system of border controls and surveillance of migrants coincides with poor standards of international protection and the absence of progressive immigration policies, have become neither a ‘substantially safe’ destination for asylum seekers nor an attractive geo-region for economic migrants.
