Schengen under review: building 'Fortress Europe'?

The Schengen agreement abolished internal borders in a large number of EU countries.

  •  Kathleen VAN BREMPT

         Belgian MEP, Alliance of Socialists and Democrats

  • Rikke ALBRECHTSEN

        Correspondent, Danish daily Kristeligt Dagblad
