Communication from the Commission to the Council on reinforcing the management of the European Union’s Southern Maritime Borders (Brussels, 30 November 2006)

Driven by the need to improve the capacity of the Community and its Member States to deal with critical situations such as the mass influx of illegal immigrants, especially at the European Union’s southern maritime external borders, the Commission proposes a European model for integrated border management. Stressing the need for operational measures to fight illegal immigration, protect refugees and reinforce control and surveillance of the external maritime border together with the necessity to build on the existing relations and practical cooperation already established with the third countries, the Commission recommends maximising the capacity of Frontex and introducing new tools for the next generation of integrated border management. The document emphasises the idea of secure borders as a central issue for EU development strategies.
