EU Citizenship and Social Rights

Entitlements and Impediments to Accessing Welfare

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on EU Citizenship series

Edited by Frans Pennings, Professor of Labour Law and Social Security Law, Utrecht University, the Netherlands and Martin Seeleib-Kaiser, Professor of Comparative Public Policy, Institute of Political Science, Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen, Germany

In the 1990s, the Maastricht Treaty introduced the right to free movement for EU citizens. In practice, however, there are substantial barriers to making use of this right, particularly to integration and to accessing the social and welfare rights available. This is particularly true when it comes to accessing social rights, such as social assistance, housing benefit, study grants and health care. This book provides a detailed description and thorough analysis of these barriers, in both law and practice.
