 Citizenship, Entitlement, and Mobility

Show Summary Details


This article explores some of the issues that have emerged in both public and private social security arising as a consequence of attempts to arrange cover despite a lack of residence or nationality. It is in three sections, dealing separately with: the questions of residence and nationality; the question of mobility and transfer of rights; and the more recent influence of human rights case law on rights and expectations. The article attempts to develop some coherent political and legal framework, but in reality few of the rules in many countries reflect a rigorous policy structure, based on any serious logical principles. The one acknowledged framework, that of the European Union, is however considered at some length.

Keywords: social security; mobility of rights; transfer of rights; human rights; legal framework; European Union
