Interdisciplinary perspectives on EU citizenship Series

The Interdisciplinary Perspectives on EU Citizenship book series builds upon the results of the research carried out within the bEUcitizen consortium. The series looks into the main issues relating to EU citizenship, and citizenship in general, from different angles and from a multi-disciplinary approach.
It approaches and analyses the concept of EU citizenship in a coherent and integrative manner, yet from a set of unique and distinct perspectives. The point of departure is that citizenship is not merely a legal notion of rights produced by statute and/or case law, but something that has developed and develops in the interchange between rules and practices, between law, politics and society. So studying citizenship issues requires an interdisciplinary approach, which is offered by the interdisciplinary team of contributors to the series from various relevant disciplines including: law, philosophy, history, sociology, political science, economics and policy studies. This important series addresses both the normative and empirical dimensions of citizenship, and will further stir the debate on citizenship questions in Europe and beyond.
