The paper investigates the limits of EUrope - the leading theme of this special edition – in relation to EUropean space and borders. Drawing on Critical Border Studies, it attempts to overcome the academic accounts of the migration and border crisis, which are anchored in the politicised opposition between opening and closing borders in EUrope and in its current central focus on ‘effective protection’ of EUrope’s external borders. By looking at European Neighbourhood Policy and Schengen area, this article addresses the questions of what and where is EUrope’s border is now. In such context, the article concludes with exposing some of the crucial limits of EUropean space and borders that are located in contradictory nature of EU’s power of attraction to non-EUrope, which is fuelling current practices of walling against non-EUrope.

Is the European Union (EU) in a state of crisis? Over recent years, a series of systemic and spontaneous challenges, including Brexit, the rise of Euroscepticism and the Eurozone and refugee crises, have manifested in landmark moments for European integration.

First published as a special issue of the journal Global Discourse, this edited collection investigates whether these crises are isolated phenomena or symptoms of a deeper malaise across the EU. Experts from across disciplines analyse and rethink the forces which pull Europeans together, as well as those which push them apart.

The mobility of the non-European Union population towards EU territory has recently dramatically redrawn the public’s attention to the problem of borders, both in the EU and in its neighbouring countries. Nearly three decades after the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the triumph of normative vision of borderless EUrope, there have been many dramatic and mediatised attempts to cross the very border of the European Union, either through the Mediterranean Sea, the massively razor-wired walls in the Spanish enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta bordering Morocco (Saddiki, 2010), La Manche from the French city of Calais (Rigy and Schlembach, 2013; Reinisch, 2015), or attempting to come ashore Greek or Italian islands (Lendaro, 2016). This mobility has also increasingly affected the social and political life of the EU’s neighbours, as they become the last transit areas in journeys to EU territory, which – in turn – has resulted in othering people in motion by local populations (Andersson, 2010a, 2010b; Bachelet, 2018).

In his fifth-century BCE chronicle of the Graeco-Persian Wars, Herodotus describes a challenge that European scholars have faced for two and a half millennia (Drace-Francis, 2013: 1). Since Antiquity, discussions of just what ‘Europe’ is, descriptively and normatively, have not been resolved and consensus has been reached that multiple ‘Europes’ exist. Recent events in Europe, though, suggest that while the boundaries of Europe are, and will forever remain, quite unknown, the boundaries of EUrope are becoming identifiable.
