Brexit: The mother of all uncertainties

So the British people have voted with a margin of around 4%, a little more than 1 million votes, to leave the European Union (EU). Where this will lead lies somewhere between two absolutely contrasting scenarios.

The heart of the matter: passion, politics and the EU referendum

Both Leave and Remain have appealed to voters’ guts to the extent that reason itself has become suspicious. Emotions will rule the day on 23 June, but at what cost?

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
