Pauline Phoa

This chapter follows a ‘Law and Literature’ approach towards EU citizens’ access to social benefits. The author demonstrates that law is not just a set of rules or institutions, but a dialogical and literary activity, which can be analysed and criticized as such. This approach is applied with regard to landmark judgments on EU citizenship such as the Grzelczyk and the Dano cases. The author argues how a ‘Law and Literature’ approach to EU citizenship contributes to understanding and critically assessing the way in which legal narratives shape EU citizenship rights.
