The analysts look at the situation on the border crossing points between Schengen countries, Russia and Belarus and develop practical recommendations

Despite substantial investments and development of transport and logistics infrastructure along the major transnational connections, carriers and passengers are still facing long queues and waiting times at the Border Crossing Points between Russia/Belarus and the bordering Schengen countries due to infrastructure related bottlenecks and lack of an integrated approach among border agencies towards Border Crossing Points Management.

The study is based on the Integrated Border Management concept, implying domestic and international cooperation and interaction between agencies with responsibilities in the area of the border management, including development of modern integrated ICT systems.

The study is financed by the European Commission.
