What the people of Nagorno-Karabakh think about the future of their homeland

The disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakah has been caught in a tug-of-war between Armenia and Azerbaijan for decades. Internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan, it’s home to an estimated 120,000 people, primarily ethnic Armenians, who want to separate from Azerbaijan. It’s been a de facto independent state since a fragile ceasefire was brokered in 1994, and low-level violence has flared up every spring ever since.

Migration, the lightning rod of the EU referendum

The EU-Turkey deal should have no role in the Brexit debate, yet it brings the crucial question of the European Union and migration into focus at an inopportune time.

Brief


The bulk of rights that come with EU citizenship are still related to the internal market. Are Union citizens therefore defined above all as consumers, workers or producers, rather than as politically empowered citizens? Is the increasing expansion of this “market citizenship” through ECJ rulings even undermining social solidarity? Or could these rights, which allow European citizens to move to and settle in another Member States, lead them to identify more closely with their fellow Europeans?

The following publication addresses these questions and others derrivng from the project EU Citizenship and the Market
