Abstract:This research aims to answer the question to what extent the work of Frontex is influenced by the cooperation agreement concluded with FRA in 2010 and the working arrangement concluded with EASO in 2012. Due to Frontex’ ‘well-known’ Human Rights (HR) infringements, those new agreements were employed to improve Frontex’ compliance. This research wants to find out what change in the work of Frontex became visible after these agreements were made. The outcome shows that the agreements are partially influential especially concerning the training. Hence this cannot be noticed concerning the operational aspects of Frontex’ work at the moment. It is also to stress that FRA and EASO are cooperating with a different focus and the agencies differ as well. Moreover, Frontex is the pivotal player in both relationships as it decides in almost all issues to what extent it lets the two agencies influence its work. The design of this approach will be explorative as this topic has not been analysed yet. The data collection is done via structured interviews. Furthermore, a content analysis of various laws, scientific articles, public statements and other primary and secondary data will be done.
