First Workshop on Researching the EU borderlands (FRONTEX-INEX) PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 03 March 2009 19:09
 On 25 February 2009, the first (of three) FRONTEX-INEX workshops was held at Collegium Civitas in Warsaw, Poland, co-financed by INEX and the EEA/Norway-Poland grant arrangement. The workshop’s aim was to facilitate and encourage debate between INEX researchers and the EU agency FRONTEX, whose mission is to strengthen the security of EU external borders. Following J. Peter Burgess’s introduction to the overall project, the morning session was dedicated to INEX researchers’ presentations of their respective workpackages and their links to FRONTEX tasks. A particular emphasis was put on the ethical implications raised by the new, very ambitious EU project for border surveillance (EUROSUR), in which FRONTEX will play a central role. FRONTEX representatives presented their work in the afternoon, followed by a substantial and constructive debate.
