Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION introduction 3 Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Many of the developments in European law the last decades concern the position of the citizen in the European Union. Direct influences on this po- tion come from case-law of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in which the notion of ‘EU citizen’ is being defined and refined, while indirect influence can be found in the immigration paragraph of the EC Treaty and the devel- ments in the fight against terrorism. In combination with the changes on all these issues as they are foreseen in the Treaty of Lisbon, all developments taken together lead to a new position of the citizen in the Member States of the European Union under the influence of European law. A special feature of the notion of EU citizenship is that it has been given form and substance through different means simultaneously: not only by means of the texts of the Treaties, but also through secondary legislation and the case-law of the ECJ. Firstly, the rights (and duties) given to EU citiz- ship are listed in the EC Treaty and need to be seen in addition to citizenship rights in the national systems of the Member States, according to the second 1 sentence of Article 17 sub 1 TEC (Art. 20 TFEU-L).

The book's aim is to consider the impact that the introduction and development of the status of Union citizenship has had on the interpretation of the EU's market freedoms. Starting by providing, in its introductory part (part one), a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the status of Union citizenship and its development from 1998 onwards, the book proceeds in part two to provide an in-depth examination of the relationship between this status and the Union's market freedoms. The central argument of the book is that, as a result of the move towards the creation of a meaningful status of Union citizenship, the market freedoms have been reconceptualised as fundamental, Union citizenship, rights and their interpretation has adapted accordingly. Part three of the book analyses the result of this process of transforming the market freedoms into sources of fundamental, Union citizenship, rights and considers where it is likely to lead in the future. It demonstrates that, despite the fact that this development appears to be the next natural step in the process of constructing a meaningful notion of Union citizenship, it brings with it a number of issues that the EU will have to consider and carefully address. In particular, the method which the Court seems, up until now, to have employed to facilitate the metamorphosis of the market freedoms into citizenship rights, has led to criticisms on the grounds of legitimacy and coherence and will, undoubtedly, lead to further problems in the future. Hence part three of the book also identifies the difficulties that may emerge as a result of this process and suggests ways in which they may be overcome.

The Transformation of Citizenship addresses the basic question of how we can make sense of citizenship in the twenty-first century. These volumes make a strong plea for a reorientation of the sociology of citizenship and address serious threats of an ongoing erosion of citizenship rights. Arguing from different scientific perspectives, rather than offering new conceptions of citizenship as supposedly more adequate models of rights, membership and belonging, they deal with both the ways citizenship is transformed and the ways it operates in the face of fundamentally transformed conditions. This volume Political Economy discusses manifold consequences of a decades-long enforcement of neo-liberalism for the rights of citizens. As neo-liberalism not only means a new form of economic system, it has to be conceived of as an entirely new form of global, regional and national governance that radically transforms economic, political and social relations in society. Its consequences for citizenship as a social institution are no less than dramatic. Against the background of both manifest and ideological processes the book looks at if citizenship has lost the basis it has rested upon for decades, or if the institution itself is in a process of being fundamentally transformed and restructured, thereby changing its meaning and the significance of citizens’ rights. This book will appeal to academics working in the field of political theory, political sociology and European studies.

'This is an excellent book that I will definitely use for teaching. Adnett and Hardy provide an optimistic assessment of the potential development of a European Social Model in the face of increasing diversity. Drawing on political, legal and economic frameworks they argue that future regulation is likely to rely on soft law and social dialogue; an argument that is likely to stimulate considerable debate.' - Jacqueline O'Reilly, Labour Market Policy and Employment Research Unit, Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB), Germany This timely book explores the development of the European Social Model and questions whether the relatively high level of social protection provided, both in terms of social welfare provision and in the creation of workers' rights and employment regulation, is sustainable.
