Refugees, EU citizenship and the common European asylum system: a normative dilemma for EU integration

Refugees, EU citizenship and the common European asylum system: a normative dilemma for EU integration
Refugees, EU citizenship and the common European asylum system: a normative dilemma for EU integration
This article argues that the practical difficulties and normative dilemmas at
stake in the European refugee crisis as a crisis of EU integration extend
beyond refugee policies into what we may call ‘the citizenship regime’ of the
European Union in ways that are consequential for refugees, member states,
and the European Union. It advances arguments for the relatively rapid access
to citizenship of refugees, demonstrates that this norm has at least some
acknowledgment in the policies of EU member states and considers what
further differentiation of refugees from other classes of migrant might be a part
of developing a just and legitimate Common European Asylum Regime. It
argues that there are some reasons to favour a CEAS in which refugees receive
EU citizenship prior to national citizenship in a member state.

Abstract

This article argues that the practical difficulties and normative dilemmas at
stake in the European refugee crisis as a crisis of EU integration extend
beyond refugee policies into what we may call ‘the citizenship regime’ of the
European Union in ways that are consequential for refugees, member states,
and the European Union. It advances arguments for the relatively rapid access
to citizenship of refugees, demonstrates that this norm has at least some
acknowledgment in the policies of EU member states and considers what
further differentiation of refugees from other classes of migrant might be a part
of developing a just and legitimate Common European Asylum Regime. It
argues that there are some reasons to favour a CEAS in which refugees receive
EU citizenship prior to national citizenship in a member state.
