Chapter Summary

Regulation 859/2003, on the coordination of social security for third-country nationals, 1 has applied since 1 June 2003. This Regulation has the "legal base" of Article 63(4) EC, which confers powers on the EC to adopt measures on the rights of third-country nationals who move between Member States. The social security position of nationals of all other non-EU countries is governed by adopted Title IV measures are or would be governed by adopted or proposed Title IV measures. It is also arguable that the general principle of equality in EC law requires an application of the non-discrimination principle to all forms of social security, particularly in light of these Strasbourg judgments and the broad non-discrimination obligation in Article 26 of the International Covenant of Civil and Political Rights.
