European Migration Law

By Pieter Boeles, Maarten den Heijer, Gerrie Lodder

Edited by: Kees Wouters

Today's EU law contains a comprehensive and almost all-encompassing migration law system. It governs both voluntary and forced migration. It controls entry, residence, and return. It covers both EU citizens and third-country nationals. Though there are fields not affected by EU law and left to the Member States, the overall picture drawn by the existing EU instruments is fairly complete. Now in its second edition, this book provides an overview of the state of EU migration law in 2014. It explores the meaning of EU legislation on migration in the light of fundamental rights and principles of EU law as explained in leading case-law of the European courts. The book is especially aimed at students, but may likewise be useful for practitioners, policy makers, or others interested in the legal foundations of migration in Europe. The book presents, in one framework, the different regimes as they pertain to: the free movement of EU citizens * the association agreement with Turkey * the migration of third country nationals for reasons of work, study, family reunification, and asylum * the regulation of movement of third country nationals to, from, and within the Schengen area * instruments to control migration.
