The book is one of the results of the bEUcitizen-project (http://beucitizen.eu/), a European collaboration on EU citizenship rights, duties and barriers.
This edited volume explores the recent political and social developments in EU citizenship. Bringing political scientists, sociologists and law scholars together, the book analyses the implications of identity categorisation regarding gender and generations in the EU and what this means for the realisation of citizens’ rights, particularly of women, young adults and migrant care workers throughout the EU.
Established researchers explore the stories of social and civil rights in the EU, covering family mobility and migration issues, the precarious positions of female migrant workers across member states and the EU’s promotion of diverse family rights. Moreover, the book focuses on the prominent issues facing the new generation of young adults: particularly social mobility, civil rights and political parties’ differing views on gender and family issues. With insight into national and regional perspectives on these significant topics, the authors argue that the European Parliament is currently striving for a new consensus to unite member states and dissipate current divisions.
