New analysis: reinforcement of Frontex runs into legal problems
An internal Frontex report published today by Statewatch highlights a series of issues in implementing the agency’s new legislation, including uncertain legal terminology and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The EU border agency is urging swift action to implement the mandate and is pressing ahead with the recruitment of its new ‘standing corps’, despite the pandemic, although it acknowledges a number of interruptions to the process.
