The key input of this deliverable is the need for an in-depth and rigorous socio-political analysis in relation to the changing nature of EU borders in order to make sure that this transformation actually serves the ends that it seeks to achieve. Indeed, the objectives driving the evolution of EU borders, in particular the fight against terrorism and the management of migration, are highly sensitive subjects in the EU today and often lead to overheated perspectives disconnected from the actual reality of these phenomena. This makes it challenging to address them in an appropriate and efficient manner. Furthermore, the dominant approach to technological automation as seen as simply improving processes (faster, safer, better) by removing the human element in it, further contributes to a socio-political naivety in relation to the changing nature of EU borders. These are the main reasons why this deliverable presents and calls for socio-political analysis of the transformation of borders and the objectives this transformation seeks to achieve. Furthermore, considering the constantly evolving nature of social reality, it is essential to continuously renew this analysis.
