The EU's highest court ruled last week that member states must take in a share of refugees who reach Europe, dismissing complaints by Slovakia and Hungary and reigniting an east-west row that has shaken the bloc's cohesion.Struggling to control chaotic movement of people at the height of the crisis, some EU states introduced emergency border checks inside what normally is the bloc's Schengen zone of control-free travel.They expire in November and Brussels is keen to restore the free flow of people across the EU, often hailed as a proud and tangible achievement of European integration.Also on Wednesday, EU ministers will discuss a proposal by Germany, France, Denmark, Austria and Norway -- not in the EU but part of Schengen -- to allow for such extraordinary border checks to continue on security grounds, rather than migration.
