This book argues that there is an inherent relationship between EU fundamental rights and EU citizenship; namely they both have the same aim of protecting the individual. This is underpinned by the development of case law in the field by the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU). However, it suggests that that relationship in recent years has been weakened as the Court has entered increasingly sensitive territory with regards protection of citizenship rights and fundamental rights.
Writing in the post EU referendum environment, the author argues that this decline is attributable to the Euroscepticism which has worsened since the Eurozone crisis and arguments that leaving the EU would reduce immigration from the EU. It offers one of the first comments on the current political atmosphere. This is important given rising fears of immigration which underlie much of the dissatisfaction with the EU project, not a feeling prevalent only in the UK. It will look at the rights of migrant EU citizens in Member States other than their own, and the guarantees that exist as a matter of protecting their fundamental human rights, which are present alongside rights enjoyed as part of being an EU citizen.
