The paper aims to investigate how European Union (EU) citizenship can currently deal more with internal Euroskeptical trends than external pressure of migration flows. EU is facing a severe challenge on its external borders due to huge migration from many third countries and, at the same time, is questioning freedom of movement of persons between Member States, thus increasing limitations to it. It’s therefore urging to explore how the Court is going to balance social solidarity and Union citizenship rights with Member States' claims aimed to reduce social benefits to inactive non -national citizens: a “double-speed citizenship” grounded on citizens’ income would never be acceptable.

Abstract

The paper aims to investigate how European Union (EU) citizenship can currently deal more with internal Euroskeptical trends than external pressure of migration flows. EU is facing a severe challenge on its external borders due to huge migration from many third countries and, at the same time, is questioning freedom of movement of persons between Member States, thus increasing limitations to it. It’s therefore urging to explore how the Court is going to balance social solidarity and Union citizenship rights with Member States' claims aimed to reduce social benefits to inactive non -national citizens: a “double-speed citizenship” grounded on citizens’ income would never be acceptable.
