Civil Rights and EU Citizenship

Challenges at the Crossroads of the European, National and Private Spheres

Edited by Sybe de Vries, Henri de Waele and Marie-Pierre Granger

The process of European integration has had a marked influence on the nature and meaning of citizenship in national and post-national contexts as well as on the definition and exercise of civil rights across Member States. This original edited collection brings together insights from EU law, human rights and comparative constitutional law to address this underexplored nexus.

Chapter 12: Epilogue: towards a European civil rights mo(ve)ment?

Marie-Pierre Granger and Henri de Waele


This chapter rounds off the book in the form of a brief forward-looking epilogue. Herein, the editors attempt to offer a reply to the questions that have functioned as drivers of the inquiries undertaken by the book’s authors, introduced in the first chapter. By juxtaposing salient findings related to the European, national and private sphere, these different nodes are brought back together, allowing for the formulation of concluding thoughts on possible future trajectories. On that footing, some divergent potential scenarios are reflected upon, ultimately embracing unbounded mobility as the more likely basis for a further evolution of EU citizenship, culminating perhaps in a genuine European civil rights mo(ve)ment.
