Globalization has had a great impact on the way in which Western liberal democracies are managing mobility. Despite the positive aspects of globalization, it is increasingly being associated with risky activities and risky individuals. This article explores how, as a result of all this, debates on mobility have become politicized and securitized and how (irregular) migrants seem to be bearing the brunt of this. In doing so, the article focuses on the area where the principle of free movement should prevail, at least in theory: the Schengen Area. Whereas debates on crime and migration have completely merged since the start of the so-called refugee crisis, this article will show that concerns of migration and crime, and the alleged relationship between the two, have always dominated the discourse on mobility in the Schengen area.
