Chapter Summary

Member States are hosting considerable groups of immigrants who in most cases have resided in the EU for generations. The study presented in this book has concentrated on analysis of various directives adopted in the sphere of legal migration, rulings of the CJEU as well as a draft EU immigration code. It has focused both on access to particular status and on subsequent possibilities for immigrants to move within the EU. The Court has ruled that Member States cannot dodge the residence requirement by issuing short-term residence permits which do not allow immigrants to qualify for long-term resident status. After passing naturalisation tests, individuals not only become part of the political community and acquire political rights to influence processes in the State but also become entitled to equal rights as citizens of the particular State, including EU citizenship rights.
