Britain has lost a role, and failed to find an empire

Theresa May's long-awaited Brexit speech must be understood as an aspiration, rather than a roadmap, since its realisation requires the consent of other parties and the removal of important contradictions, argues Benjamin Martill.

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
