Senior Citizenship? Retirement, Migration and Welfare in the European Union

Louise Ackers, Peter James Dwyer

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Debates about citizenship in Europe, particularly in relation to social policy and welfare provision, are increasingly topical as the European Union expands and moves towards greater integration. This book charts the development of mobility and welfare rights for retired people moving or returning home under the Free Movement of Persons provisions. It raises important issues around the future of social citizenship and the implications of the exercise of agency, in an increasingly global and mobile world.
