“Civis capitalist sum: class as the new guiding principle of free free movement rights”

October 1, 2016 • By

A new article by Charlotte O’Brien has been published in the Common Market Law Review. Titled “Civis Capitalist Sum: Class as the New Guiding Principle of EU Free Movement Rights”, it puts forward the argument that the European Court of Justice’s  increasing tolerance of nationality-discrimination creates a moral vacuum at the heart of free movement law, which is susceptible to exploitation by Member States imposing their own definitions of work. The full abstract is re-produced below. The article is available to view here.
