The phenomenon of partial migration relates to economically active persons resident in one country while working in another. Traditionally, it embraced frontier and posted workers but the revolution of information and communication technologies has brought about new forms and patterns of partial migration.
This book provides the first systematic analysis of the rights of partial migrants in the European Union by bringing this topic within the discourse of Union citizenship. It begins with the outline of the history of correlation between the concepts of citizenship, bona fide residence, labour migration, and socio-economic rights. It further explores the potential of Union citizenship as a constitutional basis of partial migrants’ rights by scrutinizing the latest case law of the European Court of Justice. Finally, the author provides a detailed examination of the problems associated with welfare-related rights of partial migrants in the areas of social security, taxation and housing.
The book will appeal to academics concerned with issues of Union citizenship and free movement of persons in the European Union, as well as to undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students of European Union Law and European Studies. Union citizens who would like to learn more about their rights will also find this study interesting and informative.
