Toward European Citizenship Law? Citizenship Governance in the European Union

Dates:
  • Mon 08 Oct 2018 09.00 - 18.45
  Add to Calendar 2018-10-08 9:00 2018-10-08 18:45 Europe/Paris Toward European Citizenship Law? Citizenship Governance in the European Union

The European Union has not developed thus far a coherent framework of common criteria for immigrant admission into EU citizenship, nor a common integration policy for newcomers. This state of affairs creates difficulties since policies, adopted based on national interests, are likely to affect all Member States without necessarily taking into account a European (or other states’) interests.

The Workshop will examine the pros and cons of adopting an EU Directive on Citizenship from a historical, comparative, and legal perspective. Should the Union develop European standards for the acquisition and loss of Union citizenship? What could be the normative justifications, conceptual principles, and institutional functions of a European citizenship regime? And what should the relations between national sovereignty and EU law be under such a regime?
