Departure from the Schengen Agreement
What would be the costs for Europe and the world?


The long-term reintroduction of border controls within Europe would reduce economic growth throughout Europe. Up to the year 2025 for Germany alone a decline in growth can be expected amounting to a minimum of 77 billions from 2016 to 2025. In a pessimistic scenario these losses could even sum up to about 235 billion euros within the next 10 years. These are the results of a current study by Prognos AG on behalf of the Bertelsmann Stiftung.
