The Schengen Agreement and the Free Movement within the European Union
AbstractAmong the main aims of the European Union there are targets such as the achievement of a high level of employment or obtaining a permanent economic growth and raising the living standard. Achieving such objectives requires the necessity of establishing a common market that represents a single economic space composed of the following elements: the customs union, the four freedoms, free competition, and common policies in the domains of agriculture, transportation and trade. The core of this common market can not be anything else than the domestic market with the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital The free movement of goods, persons, services and capital within the EU common internal market is ensured by a set of provisions of the Community law which, together, constitute the four fundamental freedoms. Although the activities of the European Union can not be easily summarized in brief, we can say about the four freedoms that they represent the free flow of the economic factors towards gaining prosperity both for Member States and their citizens.
