The Legal Elements of European Identity: EU Citizenship and Migration Law

The Legal Elements of European Identity: EU Citizenship and Migration Law

Willem Maas, Associate Professor of Political Science, Public & International Affairs, Social & Political Thought, and Socio-Legal Studies at Glendon College, York University, reviews The Legal Elements of European Identity: EU Citizenship and Migration Law. The book questions how increased European Union immigration and more extensive citizenship law affect the formation of European identity. The author argues that European integration has multiplied the sources of legal identity. The main divide is between European citizens and third country nationals; while European citizens’ rights largely resemble those of domestic citizens, third country nationals are usually excluded from those rights.
