Departure from the Schengen Agreement
The long-term reintroduction of border controls within Europe would reduce economic growth throughout Europe. This is the results of a study by Prognos on behalf of the Bertelsmann Stiftung. Up to the year 2025 for Germany alone a decline in growth can be expected amounting to a minimum of 77 billion € from 2016 to 2025. In a pessimistic scenario these losses could even sum up to about 235 billion € within the next 10 years. In Western European countries, border controls would have significant consequences. Among the Eastern European countries, the negative effects would to the greatest extent affect Poland.
