This report is the part of the WP 2.3 work package of RESPOND, which explores border management and migration controls in the eleven countries selected for the RESPOND project (Austria, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iraq, Italy, Lebanon, Poland, Sweden, Turkey and the United Kingdom) between 2011 and 2017. The current report provides a comparative analysis of the legal frameworks and policy implementation in these eleven countries, drawing on the national reports submitted as the second deliverable of WP2.The key aims of the report are to explore patterns of convergence and divergence in relation to law, policy and policy implementation between these countries, map the key actors involved in border management and migration control in EU & non-EU countries, as well as to explore how the governance of border management and migration control has changed between 2011 and 2017 in both EU and non-EU countries. Further, in order to contribute to the development of theoretical insights, we draw on key theoretical perspectives relating to border management and migration controls – such as literature on Europeanisation and the development of migration policy in the EU, and critical migration and border studies
