Abstract:EU’s border management approach is currently being challenged as the turmoil in neighboring states around the Mediterranean is pushing the current security, immigration and asylum policies closer to the limits of their efficiency. The increasing inflow of irregular immigrants has put the Dublin III Regulation under the microscope as more voices of concern are being heard regarding the so called burden-shifting effect it allegedly encourages. This thesis provides an outline of the security practices applied by both the EU and individual Member States in the common Mediterranean borders and presents the main provisions of the Dublin framework as shaped throughout the years, while also examining in short the implications concerning the rights of immigrants. As a means to search for any possible links between security practices and asylum legislation, outside the literature review, semi-structured interviews with certain stakeholders were conducted and the results are presented following a process of thematic content analysis. The results demonstrate a clear adoption of the idea that more solidarity needs to be induced to EU’s current strategies as well as that other aspects of the latter need to be reviewed.
