Key facts

Since 1985, the EU states have regulated their cooperation on justice, police, borders and visas by means of the Schengen agreement. The supplementary Dublin agreements define the responsibilities for asylum applications. They are intended to permit border-free travel within the Schengen Area for the region’s roughly 500 million inhabitants.
