Abstract This article discusses the extension of citizenship-related rights to third-country nationals (TCNs) and their analogous interpretation with the rights enjoyed by European Union citizens. Starting with a discussion of the limited possibilities of fully extending Union citizenship to TCNs, it proceeds to discuss the Court’s case law regarding the application of EU general principles of law to TCNs and the interpretation of Union law concepts. It is argued that granting TCNs citizenship-related rights, such as the right to move freely within the EU and the right to non-discrimination on grounds of nationality, and their analogous interpretation with the rights enjoyed by Union citizens constitute a viable alternative to the full extension of Union citizenship.
