Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at non-discrimination in the context of EU citizenship status to establish to what extent rights attached to residence have been extended by virtue of EU citizenship. This part deals with three problem areas illustrating the scope of Treaty application, i.e., the cross border element; a link to the territory of the person concerned; extension of the scope of the Treaty if those two criteria are satisfied and beyond. It also looks at the problem of reverse discrimination. This chapter looks more closely at recent developments in relation to family reunification in order to establish trends in identifying rights which apply to EU citizens’ family members. And address issues related to interpretation of the concept ‘substance of rights’, the concept ‘by reason of its nature and consequences’ as well as EU competence in ‘purely internal situations’.

Keywords:diplomatic protection; EU citizenship; family reunion; reverse discrimination; Treaty application
