Socializing Europe - Solidifying EU Citizenship
The ongoing European crisis brings to the forefront questions about the future of the social aspect of European integration. This book addresses these questions by focusing on the evolution of the social rights of EU citizens. The book presents a detailed analysis of the current trends in approaching the development of the social dimension of EU citizenship at both the European and national level. Following a sharp critique of the existing approaches and their consequences in this field of European integration, the book proposes a novel way of addressing its future development. The principle of subsidiarity - comprising both its positive and negative side - is advanced as an appropriate alternative and useful tool for coherent, transparent, and legitimate construction of social rights of EU citizens.
