Chapter Summary

Nationality originated along with development of the modern nation-State. The status of migrants arriving and residing in the EU as well as nationality represents an opportunity to ensure a transition from nation-based statuses to trans-national ones. This chapter talks about the contents of this book, which discusses EU citizenship as part of the construction of a status that differs from national citizenship. It is enriched by analysis of interrelationships with regulation of legal immigration, integration and national context of Latvia. In order to reveal the contents of the EU citizenship concept and its different status from national citizenship, this book analyses the different tests introduced by the CJEU. The book highlights Latvia as it represents a particularly interesting case to study the potential of EU citizenship and possible implications of third-country national statuses on its future development. The normative framework of international law will serve as basis for further analysis.
