Product Description

The thesis of Sandra Mantu entitled `The Boundaries of European Social Citizenship` sketches the legal framework within which the debate regarding access to social benefits for economically inactive migrant EU citizens takes place, dealing in detail with the social entitlements of three specific categories: students, retired citizens and unemployed/job seekers.

The thesis, written under the supervision of Elspeth Guild and Paul Minderhoud, tries to answer the question how the principle of solidarity based on the notion of Union citizenship applies in practice for those three categories and how the introduction of Union citizenship has affected the position of each of those groups of citizens.
