Frontex – Management of Europe's borders

30-01-2015

Frontex is the Agency which helps those EU Member States facing strong migratory pressures to secure the EU's external borders, through coordinating deployment of equipment and border guards made available by Member States. In recent years, Frontex has managed a number of operations off the coasts of Greece, Italy and Spain, as well as on the Union's eastern land borders. With the continuing influx of migrants seeking to enter the Union by ever-increasing routes and methods, many experts underline the limited resources available to Frontex and call on the EU and its Member States to increase their contributions to the Agency.
