Abstract

ng This week has seen the latest in a all too frequent series of Islamist terror attacks on major European cities. This time Brussels, home of the European Union and European Commission came under attack, and it seems with it the very idea of the European area of free movement, writes Joseph Downing. He claims that regardless of the rhetoric of certain Eurosceptic parties, such as UKIP, who have called for the UK to reclaim control of its borders, the role of freedom of movement in facilitating such terrorist atrocities is far more complex – especially for the UK, which sits outside the Schengen freedom of movement zone.
