In 1992 the Treaty of Maastricht was adopted, that introduced inter alia a new concept: EU citizenship. It provided that EU citizens can rely on the rights ensured by the treaties and on free movement (Articles 20 and 21 TFEU). Since until that Treaty the provisions on free movement and non-discrimination on ground of nationality had been limited to workers and self-employed, this meant an important extension of rights. For workers, the Treaty guaranteed, already from the establishment of the EEC, that they had to be treated equally as national workers. Requiting equal treatment for economically non-active persons is much more problematic. If, for instance, anyone from the moment of entering a Member State would be entitled to social assistance, this might lead, it is feared, to ‘benefit tourism’ and that would clearly overstretch the solidarity of the host State. For this reason the combination of mobile EU citizens and social rights constitutes a politically highly sensitive area.

This Handbook encompasses four dimensions of European social security law: social security as a human right, standard setting in social security, the protection of mobile persons and migrants and the global context of European social security law. It pays attention to both EU law and to various instruments of the Council of Europe. In 25 chapters prominent experts analyse contemporary debates, discuss new challenges and point out further lines of research. Through this exploration, the Handbook provides a source of inspiration for the development of this special field of law.
