this is from research paper,and I don't understand.
The concept of "fortress Europe" has been used to capture the processws by which internalcontrols within the EU and across member states have been relaxed while at the same time external controls have been introduced or strengthened in parallel with increased internal surveillance.

Explanation:
'capture' just means 'describe'. There are fewer controls on movement within Europe, and more controls on movements into and out of Europe. Plus, local police are stronger. Hence, it resembles a fortress.
Meanwhile, this is not a Chinese-English question, is it?
