EU working paper suggests suspending Schengen zone for two years

EU interior ministers on Friday will discuss the proposal drafted by the Luxembourg EU presidency

EU interior ministers will on Friday discuss suspending the Schengen zone for two years, on the basis that the migrant crisis has exposed “serious deficiencies” at the Greek border that endanger the overall area, the Financial Times reported. The option of invoking “Article 26” is proposed in a leaked working paper for the interior ministers prepared by Luxembourg, which holds the rotating presidency of the EU. Meanwhile, European Council President Donald Tusk said in an interview with the Guardian and five other European newspapers that “this wave of migrants is too big not to stop them.” See also our cepInput on the empirical and legal aspects of the refugee crisis.
