Chapter Summary

This chapter delves into questions by focusing on European border policies and safeguards applying to border controls under European and international law. In section 2, an overview is presented of strategies of extraterritorial border control which have been undertaken on both the level of EU Member States and the EU itself. It explores whether these safeguards also apply to extraterritorial border controls, starting with the common rules on asylum. It also addresses the circumstances under which European States cooperated with third States in controlling the border be held responsible for conduct which might violate refugee and other human rights. It argues that for such overarching norms as the prohibition of refoulement to be of value for individual migrants subjected to pre-border control measures, they need to be implemented in a practically workable and meaningful manner.

Keywords: EU Member States; European border; extraterritorial border control; human rights; international law; refoulement
