Preliminary title: The Implications of Border Control Externalization Policies in the European Union
The policy paper will address the policy implications of research findings, and will target policymakers, EU officials, civil society representatives, and the general public. It will summarize research findings in an accessible form, and draw policy conclusions that are aimed at improving policymaking both on the national and European level.
The paper will bridge the gap between academic research and policymaking. It will be informed by the in-depth academic research that project members will conduct, which it will translate into policy-relevant guidelines that practitioners can use. The BordEUr team believes that policymakers will benefit from a scientifically informed, accessible analysis of existing practices that capitalizes on cutting-edge research methods. The guidelines derived from research will enable more nuanced policymaking that is more aware of wider contexts and phenomena at play.
