Frontex has been characterised since its creation as a very pro-active Agency, and has frequently adjusted its operational activities to its ambitious understanding of border management. This has often led to it operating on the fringe of its mandate. This has been identified by civil society organisations, researchers and institutional monitoring bodies, all of which have expressed concern about the legality of some of Frontex's practices as well as about their impact upon civil liberties and fundamental rights.
