Maas, Willem. (2003) "Creating European citizens: The genesis of European rights". In: UNSPECIFIED, Nashville, TN. (Unpublished)
This is part of my Ph.D. dissertation, entitled "Creating European Citizens," which explains the development and implications of European Union citizenship. Supranational rights in Europe originated in the European Coal and Steel Community free movement provisions. In a poetical compromise, these provisions were included at the insistence of the Italian delegation, although the other member states dawdled in implementing them. Examining the genesis of European rights recasts EU citizenship from a contemporary phenomenon that dates only from the Maastricht Treaty to a recent expression of the same tensions and compromises that have characterized the entire history of European integration. This paper addresses a significant lacuna in the literature by focusing on the political and economic origins of what today forms the core of EU citizenship.
