Borders and security
Building an open and safe Europe
One of the fundamental objectives of the European Union (EU) is to create an area without internal borders where people may move, live and work freely, knowing that their rights are fully respected and their security ensured. In this context, home affairs policies have a key role to play. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
