bEUcitizen: All Rights Reserved? Barriers towards European citizenship (BEUCITIZEN)

DSPI Principal Investigator: Professor Martin Seeleib-Kaiser

bEUcitizen: All Rights Reserved? Barriers to European Citizenship is a European research endeavour by a consortium of 26 universities coordinated by Utrecht University. The research involves an EU subsidy of €6.5 million. The research, which began in May 2013 and will run for a period of four years, is directed towards identifying obstacles that EU citizens encounter in the exercise of their citizenship rights and obligations. What are the reasons for these impediments; what are the possibilities for the European Union to further develop the notion of European citizenship in the future?

The research aims to gain insights into: the obstacles faced by European citizens when they exercise their rights; the possible contradictions between economic, social, political and civil citizenship rights; and the conceptualisation thereof at the European and national level.  Collectively the programme adopts a multidisciplinary approach and involves international comparative research.  Colleagues within DPSI are focusing specifically on the exercise of social rights for European Citizens within the context of the UK.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 320294.
