The creation of an area of freedom, security and justice, called for in the Amsterdam Treaty, is a goal further developed by the so-called "Tampere milestones", which include a common European asylum and migration policy, and a Union-wide fight against organised crime. Also, the tendency towards a global integrated approach has been confirmed by the need for stronger external action and partnerships with countries of origin. 
This book gathers together contributions on these issues from politicians, civil servants, practitioners and academics, discussed at the Ninth Schengen and Justice and Home Affairs Colloquium organised by the European Institute of Public Administration in Maastricht, in October 2001. Other issues include the prevention of illegal immigration and people smuggling, the carriers' point of view on liability, the conclusion of readmission agreements, reinforced police cooperation at EU level, the role of Europol in the fight against crime, the particular situation of victims of trafficking in human beings and of asylum seekers in particular, and the latest developments in the implementation of Schengen in the Nordic countries. 
This publication thus provides both an assessment of the progress made and measures taken, as well as an insight into new problems and challenges.
