Abstract

This article takes a closer look at the legal framework on citizenship of the Union. In particular, it analyzes the amendments that took effect at the end of 2009, due to the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty. Though at first sight, these seem to verge on the trivial, the present paper engages in detailed scrutiny, and hypothesizes that a more fundamental change may be perceived than is commonly acknowledged. It attempts to map the consequences of this supposed watershed with regard to both EU and third country nationals. Ultimately, it argues that the novel place attributed to the concept extends its reach further than ever before, and supplies it with a massive potential that the European Court of Justice is poised to exploit.

Edited by Eva Rieter and Henri de Waele

This volume offers an overview of several emerging trends and structural patterns in the development of international law, highlighting its evolution over the course of time. While the focus lies on leading principles, these are analysed within a broader context and through various different thematic lenses. Consequently, the chapters at the heart of this book contain comprehensive surveys of a number of specialised topics and particular sub-domains. The result is an original series of reflections, painting a chequered picture of pivotal changes and longitudinal shifts in the global legal community.
Evolving Principles of International Law marks the occasion of the retirement of Karel Wellens as the Chair of International Law at Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and has contributions by André Nollkaemper, Malcolm Shaw, Rein Müllerson and many others.
