Your gateway to free movement in Europe
Schengen, a village in southern Luxembourg on the river Moselle, has become a synonym for the abolition of internal border controls and for free movement in Europe. Each Schengen country is regularly evaluated to make sure that the rules agreed upon are applied correctly by everyone. The abolition of internal border controls has consequences for other policy areas such as how to deal with cross-border crime, cross-border travel, cross-border trade and cross-border justice. Therefore, the rules on the Schengen area not only concern the free movement of persons, but also visas, asylum and... police, customs and judicial cooperation.
