Summary/Abstract: Fargues rightly said "Migration has become global but there is no global regime to govern the international movement of persons". It is essential to point out the importance of the cooperation with neighboring countries. Solely the protection of European Union's (hereinafter EU) borders cannot be successful unless neighboring countries cooperate in the fields of irregular migration and the fight against cross-border criminality and terrorism. Even if this political approach driven by European security interests moves the EU from its bilateral and multilateral regional cooperation schemes to becoming "Fortress Europe" , the EU still bases its relations with the Mediterranean, especially owing to the migration crisis on a defensive approach. In order to do this, the EU should offer a certain level of compensatory measures that incentivize such cooperation, such as economic privileges or visa facilitation.
