Eu Citizenship In The Light Of Brexit


  • Anna LACZIK

    (Law student, Faculty of Law University of Miskolc, HUNGARY.)


The Brexit was an extraordinary event that envisaged new situations and their adequate solutions. It is therefore essential to examine the legal issues that will arise during the exit, of which I will examine the impact of Brexit on the status of EU citizens, referring to both for EU27's EU citizens living in the United Kingdom and for British citizens residing in the remaining Member States. For the latter, the EU citizen status is likely to cease ipso iure by the UK’s exit. During my researches, I have given high priority to the freedom of movement and residence, which is, on the one hand, a partial right of Union citizenship, on the other, one of the foundations of the internal market. I examine the general effects of Brexit, and the situation of British citizens living in the United Kingdom, then of those Brits who live in the EU, and finally of EU citizens living in the UK, with special attention to the student mobility. With the exit of the UK, millions of British citizens, who have previously been also EU citizens, will be bereft of this right and be considered as third-country nationals. Thus, I consider necessary to present the status of third-country nationals.
