The new Pact on Migration is a consolidation of externalization policies. Actually, to some extent, it is a step forward, in the sense that it fosters externalization practices already in (and from) the European territory. Two measures are instrumental to this purpose: the pre-entry screening and the amended border procedures. The blogpost argues that their main effect is to downgrade the European territory to a lower density legal territory, by creating a system of revolving doors reinforcing European borders and limiting access to rights.
