Abstract: 
The Schengen agreement has guaranteed unchecked travel across internal EUborders since 1995. Has it also facilitated trade flows? Our econometric analysissuggests that Schengen has boosted trade by 3% on average (equivalent to a drop in tariffs by 0.7 percentage points). Goods trade is more robustly affected than services, and peripheral countries benefit more than central ones.
