Title: EU citizenship : still a fundamental status?

Series/Number: EUI RSCAS; 2018/14; Global Governance Programme-296; GLOBALCIT
Written as a standalone essay as part of an edited booked based on citizenship forums published on the GlobalCIT website, this essay is intended to explore the trajectory of EU citizenship, under pressure from forces inside and outside the EU. The focus of the discussion is on three issues: the autonomy of national citizenship laws in the face of EU citizenship; the citizenship consequences of Brexit; and the choices made and actions taken by individuals and groups that may impact upon on the future of EU citizenship. This discussion is prefaced by an initial exploration of the challenges and complexities of EU citizenship and of the relationship between citizenship and concepts of integration and Europeanisation.
