    Abstract

    There are various issues which arise in the European context with respect to the boundaries of citizenship; however, one of the main questions which arises in this regard is to what extent will the division between the European Union citizens and third country nationals increase, especially if further entrenchment of the idea of "Fortress Europe" occurs due to "deepening" of the Community? This paper addresses the question of to what extent can citizenship rights be extended to third country migrants in the EU? This paper is divided into three parts. The first part briefly highlights and explains some of the major existing theories related to definitions of citizenship, thus to put the second part in context. The second part will concentrate on Italy and Greece as two case studies of "new" receiving states affected by the ongoing North/South migration prevailing in the Mediterranean region in the 1990s. Finally, we shall view and attempt to explain what problems and prospects this situation offers to the EU in the era of the Single European Market, using the cases of the transformation of Italy and Spain from 'sending' to 'receiving' countries as an example.
