This project came at a time when the Schengen area was undergoing profound adaptations against the backdrop of a migratory crisis. Within the framework of the Alliance Europa programme, it seemed necessary to develop research in order to clarify the foundation and genesis of the Schengen area, so as to better understand and explain the dynamics that drive its development and adaptations.
Over a period of two years, this project was led by Yves Pascouau, associate researcher at the University of Nantes and a post-doctoral researcher, under the supervision of Michel Catala.
The research project started in September 2017 and ended in December 2019.
