Chapter 10: The general principles of Regulation 883/2004 and their outer limits
Restricted access

This chapter seeks to trace the outer limits of the general principles of EU social security law. The outer limits of general principles such as non-discrimination or export are especially revelatory, as that is where they are most uncertain and most chafe against competing goals, values and interests. Descriptively, the outer limits are where there is most room for disagreement as to what the law is. Normatively, the outer limits are where there is most room for disagreement as to what the law should be. The descriptive and normative outer limits are often related: uncertain areas may well be controversial. Another aim is to demonstrate that the principle of non-discrimination on grounds of nationality and three other general principles can be evaluated by reference to a largely common set of goals, values and interests. Instead of covering all general principles, I select four with a view to showing their interconnections.
