Citizenship of the European Union

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses European citizenship as part of the political development of the Community. There are two key developments contributing to such development: the development of a passport union, and of political rights taking effects across national frontiers. Part Two of the Treaty on European Union contains the provisions on citizenship of the Union. There have also been some significant case law developments on the rights which flow from the introduction of this citizenship.
