Chapter Summary

This is the conclusion chapter of this book which examines certain aspects of the most important piece of legislation in the area of immigration that the European Union (EU) has adopted since it obtained a clear-cut competence to regulate these matters with the Amsterdam Treaty in 1999. The Long-term Residence Directive grants third-country nationals equal rights in a number of areas, secure residence status as well as the possibility to move into, and reside in, another Member State. The analysis of the Directive has served to determine whether the EU is constructing a new "Legal Other" through its implementation and interpretation, or whether, on the contrary, this instrument is bridging the gap between the rights of European citizens and those of third-country nationals. "Legal Other", meant those third-country nationals who do not have an independent right of entry to work in the EU.

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