Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that the Maastricht era acquis had been deeply influenced by the Schengen approach, and to a large extent even literally 'copied' Schengen measures. An overview of the intergovernmental and EU acquis is also important from a policy-making point of view. The first policy documents adopted since the 1970s and up to Maastricht show clearly that there were definitely segments of migration policy since the very early days of the Community. Whilst the later documents adopted under the Maastricht Treaty provide a clear idea of how migration policy was perceived and contribute in evaluating the developments in policy-making in the last decade. Migration policy received a new impetus via the process of completing the internal market following the adoption of the Single European Act and the presentation of the Commission's White Paper.
