This article examines the use and effectiveness of migration controls as an instrument to fight terrorism in the European Union (EU). It examines the evolution of the role of migration controls in the EU counter-terrorism policy, through an analysis of the migration control measures that are already part of the EU counter-terrorism policy and those that are currently under discussion. It shows that migration control measures have become increasingly important in the EU counter-terrorism policy, especially since 2004, and that this trend is set to continue given the significant number of proposals currently being negotiated in this policy area. The article argues that it is a problematic development, as the effectiveness of migration controls in the fight against terrorism is questionable in the case of the EU. It is even more questionable when one considers the negative externalities of some of the EU measures that have been adopted or are currently under discussion.
