Summary/Abstract: European integration, in general, and the development of the Schengen regime, in particular, have transformed the nature of national borders, their role and function, as well as meanings and perceptions regarding them.Rather than the traditionalists’ definition of borders as fixed lines separating states’ territories, critical border scholars theorize them by dwelling on their (re)construction, re-spatialization and re-allocation as dispersed, deterritorialized and mobile.2 Another significant point critics elaborate on is how the bordering process creates an Other that always changes depending on “who they are, where they are coming from and going to”.
