What is an “EU Citizen”?

24 April 2019 by

In the 1980s the European Commission embarked upon an ambitious scheme to cultivate, on the basis of free movement, the idea of EU citizenship in higher education. Universities have long been seen as places of national citizenship formation. The Erasmus scheme was designed to further the notion of citizenship untethered to the nation state by funding and therefore encouraging student mobility.

Has it worked? Dr Cherry James, coordinator of the Erasmus Programme at London South Bank University, discusses her views with Rosalind English in Episode 76 of Law Pod UK. Cherry has recently published her findings in Citizenship, Nation-building and Identity in the EU: The Contribution of Erasmus Student Mobility  . This book sits at the intersection of three main interrelated themes: EU citizenship, the current state of the university in Europe, and student mobility.
