    This is part of my PhD. dissertation, entitled "Creating European Citizens," which explains the development and implications of European Union citizenship. EU citizenship grants nationals of EU member states a set of rights (including mobility and voting rights) throughout the territory of the Union; these are rights enforceable by individuals against states of which they are not necessarily citizens. In this paper, I consider some scenarios for the future o£ EU migration rights. I advance two main arguments: first, the current Treaty rights enjoy widespread support and are unlikely to be reversed, although contestation continues to occur over their interpretation and implementation. Second, although a number of phenomena-here I consider enlargement and the push for greater harmonization between different national legal systems, touching also on potential socio-economic shocks and political opposition-pose risks for their future development. EU migration rights will likely be consolidated and even expanded over the coming decades. The dynamics by which this probable consolidation and expansion of rights occurs deserve close attention.
