The EU’s home affairs agencies, most notably Frontex, Europol and the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), have moved to the center of the EU’s efforts to deal with the unprecedented rise of migrants entering Europe. They have provided operational support for the EU’s ‘hotspots’ in Greece and Italy and become engaged in the EU’s efforts to dismantle the networks smuggling migrants. These agencies have also a key role in the implementation of the EU-Turkey agreement that aims at ending the irregular migration from Turkey into the EU.
