The notion of citizenship has undergone significant changes over the last few years because of European Union developments. Citizens have obtained additional economic, social and political rights but have also seen privacy and other rights limited because of the European fight against terrorism. Recent developments, such as the European Constitution and the Treaty of Lisbon, have aimed to change citizenship rights for European citizens and third-country nationals in the European Union.
This book explores the influence of the EU on citizenship rights, especially in view of the fight against terrorism and the constitutional changes negotiated in the last decade. It is highly recommended to academics, policy makers, civil servants and those interested in EU citizenship.
