Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of the book examines the implementation and possible interpretation of the Long-term Residence Directive in order to see its potentiality to become a subsidiary form of European Union (EU) citizenship. It provides some conceptual clarifications as regards key concepts that is used. First, the chapter explains what is meant by the EU when this particular area is analysed, since the views of the European Commission, Parliament, Council, Court of Justice and European Council may differ greatly. Second, it explains what is meant by Legal Other. Legal Other means those third-country nationals who do not have an independent right of entry to work in the EU. The chapter looks at which nationals of what countries enjoy that right. It states that the concept of Legal Other affects only regular migrants, mainly exercising an economic activity, who have prospects to stay in the host State.

Keywords: European Union (EU); legal other; Long-term Residence Directive
