This seminar uses Brexit as a “lens” through which the legal nature of EU citizenship and associated rights can be examined. While political negotiations around the rights of EU citizens continue, the presentation aims to focus in more detail on what has been revealed about the content of EU citizenship in legal terms as a result of these processes: about the extent of its guarantees and protection, but about its very real legal limits too. How EU citizenship might (need to) change into the post-Brexit future for the remaining Member States will also be addressed.
