Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with lege lata adopted so far and binding upon Member States. Policy plans are noted as subsidiary means of interpretation or as guidance for further possible developments. The EU immigrant has three interests: first, conditions for entry and protection from expulsion; second, access to employment and conditions of employment; and third, family reunification. Statuses of immigrants would be more attractive in proportion to higher demand for strengthening current invented statuses instead of naturalization. The EU has opted for a sector approach in its admission policies and in addition to the LTR Directive has adopted three other directives covering students, researchers and Blue Card holders. A section focuses on the Family Reunification Directive and also refers to sector directives to identify commonalities and differences. The LTR Directive primarily addresses issues related to family re-unification in a second Member State.

Keywords:EU immigrant; family reunification directive; LTR directive; member states; naturalization; researchers directive; students directive
