An initial conclusion to draw is that the term ‘regime’ is probably more accurate than ‘policy’. This is because most definitions of regimes are broad enough to encapsulate the complex and nebulous legal formulas applied in the EU’s regulation of immigration and asylum. One of the most widely cited definitions of a regime is: a set of ‘principles, norms, rules, and decision-making procedures around which actor expectations converge in a given issue-area’ (Krasner 1982). As we have seen in this chapter, there is a greater level of convergence over the ‘repressive’ side of migration and asylum policies in the EU, which tells us something about the kind of ‘regime’ which is being constructed.

In a way the machine has already developed its own dynamic, with technical system questions dominating the decision-making around policies and their implementation. However, it is not necessary merely to accept this scenario. Whenever technology is involved, it is always possible to make choices and suggest alternative designs. The authors reclaim the role of citizens as subjects who are actively involved in controlling and shaping Europe’s technological borders. The chapter therefore concludes that different strategies of counter-surveillance are needed to strengthen the position of migrants and citizens to reclaim control over the ‘migration machine’.
