Europe is a mobile society and mobility is at the heart of our sustainable development. The creation of the Schengen area without internal borders has brought important benefits to European citizens and businesses alike. In order to ensure a high level of internal security and the free movement of persons within Schengen, the absence of internal borders in the Schengen area requires strong and reliable external borders. Thus, securing Schengen area is the cornerstone of ensuring European Union coherence, but still only one part of the security equation. EU is facing many other challenges and the security agenda is getting more and more complex and demanding and thus security practitioners must remain vigilant in order to confront all challenges. The protection of Europe’s societies has become an all-hazards effort not geographically and culturally bound.
