Barriers to EUropean Citizenship

Welcome to the webpage of the bEUcitizen research project. Our research focusses on the barriers that still exist to realise and exercise citizenship rights of EU citizens. This project aims to include all aspects of citizenship:
- How did it develop historically? How did people gain citizenship rights (and economic rights and in which order)?
- What about social, economic, political rights? Are there still barriers to these rights and do they sometimes clash? For example with the rights for different categories of citizens?
- Do gender and generational differences play a role in realising and exercising rights as EU citizens?
- Are there different rights, different levels of realisation and exercising for minorities? How is this affected by migration?
