Project description

This project analyses the implications of the interaction between EU and national law as far as the right to family reunification is concerned. After an analysis of the various relevant legal instruments (ECHR, EU directives on family reunification and citizenship), the impact of evolutions in EU legislation and jurisprudence on the scope for national Member State action and the potential for reverse discrimination and legal uncertainty is scrutinized.
