Chapter Summary

In this chapter the attention now turns to Schengen related cross-border information systems. The information systems analysed here are part of police co-operation and cross-border exchange of information in general. As such, it is important to look at their relation with the SIS. The chapter goes into more detail than Mathiesen does, it examines similarities and differences between SIS and these other systems and how the systems are contributing to excessive control in society. In particular, the concern is to investigate how the systems supplement the SIS or vice versa. Focus is specifically directed to issues of data protection, linkage, integration and sharing of data among the systems. The Interpol is an important police and border control. The Eurodac is a foreign nationals' register unlike SIS which registers data on EU citizens also. The cumulative effect of these systems is that they increase instances of control and surveillance in Europe.
