This volume has sought to capture the interplay between the equality challenge and the integration framework for regularly residing third-country nationals (TCNs) in the EU context, and sought to offer considered research on this complex and challenging area of migration studies. It has addressed the problems arising in relation to TCNs’ access to social goods from different perspectives and using a diversified methodology ranging from the case-study approach to legal analysis and empirical work. The framework chapters in the first part (Part I) focused on the three interlinked themes of citizenship, equality and integration, within the European Union in the post-Lisbon era. The introduction of the legally binding Charter of Fundamental Rights led to an important shift in the identity of the individuals entitled to claim rights within the EU. The Charter constitutes a new challenge for the Union institutions and the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) in relation to the protection of both EU citizens and third-country nationals as TCNs also benefit from the rights contained therein.
