Recent Challenges and ReformsSeneste udfordringer og reformer
Recent events, involving inter alia France and Denmark, have stimulated renewed interest in the introduction of different forms of border controls at the internal borders within the European Union. These border control measures are aimed at checking either persons or goods or both. Against the background of these events, this article analyses the existing rules regulating controls of persons and goods, and explores how these rules may or may not stand in the way of introducing border controls at the European Union’s internal borders. These events have resulted in a call for reforms of the current rules. This article examines the Commission’s currently pending proposed changes, and discusses other possible reforms that would clarify the existing rules.
