Abstract:This bachelor thesis focuses on investigating the working practices of the European Union’s external borders agencies, FRONTEX and its successor, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (EBCGA). The external borders agency has been criticised for not upholding fundamental rights, not providing transparency and not effectively operating in their areas of work. The new mandate significantly reinforces the Agency’s operational powers and provides the Agency with a new, supervisory role. This research aims at revealing the extent to which the new mandate can improve the currently lack of output legitimacy, defined as effectiveness of the working practices of the external borders agency. By analysing the effectiveness of FRONTEX, comparing the outcomes with the innovations that the EBCGA has to offer, it is concluded that under the new mandate, the external borders agency of the European Union (EU) is able to improve the currently lacking output legitimacy.
