Chapter Summary

Through an analysis of the relevant European Community ( EC) and European Union (EU) legal bases up to Amsterdam, this chapter traces and presents the origins of a Community competence on migration. It examines the Treaty of Rome, the Single European Act and the Treaty of Maastricht. The chapter discusses about the Schengen Agreements and the importance of their impact on the formation of a Community migration policy. It explores the reasons for the birth of this parallel track and provides an account of the institutional characteristics of this project. The chapter is structured around the two aforementioned themes. Firstly, the competence debate, and secondly, the arduous process of searching for a proper institutional framework during this first stage of migration policymaking. The Single European Act was linked with the re-launching of the common market project, which was renamed the "internal market".

Keywords: Amsterdam; European Community ( EC); European Union (EU); migration policy; Schengen Agreements; Single European Act; Treaty of Maastricht; Treaty of Rome
