Social Agenda 34 - Free movement of EU workers  (30/07/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-AF-13-034-EN-C

Social Agenda No 34 features the European Commission’s recent proposal to concretely help EU workers who want to move, or already have moved, within the European Single Market. Although the EU legislation on the freedom of movement of workers dates back to 1968, the right to equal treatment with the workers of the host country (i.e. non-discrimination on the grounds of nationality) is still not familiar to many, including among national and local civil servants. Social Agenda also looks from an employment and social affairs angle at the EU budgetary framework leading up to 2020, the need for common European indicators to improve cohesion policy and the 2013 European Semester. And it explains why "Social Europe" is one of the European Commission's most popular social media platforms. Social Agenda is available in printed format in English, French and German.

FMW - Online Journal on Free Movement of Workers within the European Union No6  (28/06/2013)

Catalog N. : KE-XD-13-001-EN-N

The sixth edition of the Online Journal follows the European Commission’s recent adoption of a proposal for a Directive, which looks at ways to improve the application of worker’s rights in the EU. The proposed legislation seeks to increase this effectiveness, through a better application of EU law on people’s rights to work in another Member State. Within this context three different experts in the field offer their insights into the current situation, with a specific focus on the dynamics of contemporary forms of intra-EU mobility and ambiguities that currently exist in the rules on access to social assistance benefits for EU citizens when abroad. This online journal is available in English only.

FMW Online journal of free movement of workers No 3  (22/12/2011)

Catalog N. : KE-XD-11-001-EN-N

FMW, the online Journal on free movement of workers within the European Union, is a twice-yearly publication coordinated by the network of experts on free movement of workers, through a Board of Advisors, under the supervision of the European Commission. Its aim is to develop academic interest and stimulate debate on this fundamental area of European law. In this third issue, past judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union are at the heart of the authors' analysis. In the first contribution Koen Lenaerts, judge at the Court of Justice, explores how the Court has determined the existence of a cross-border element in the light of recent cases such as Rottmann, Ruiz Zambrano, and McCarthy. The second contribution by Camelia Toader, judge at the Court of Justice, together with her Legal Secretary Andrei Florea, points out certain key aspects pertaining to the development of the free movement of workers. The third contribution by Diane Roland, Senior Lecturer at Lincoln Law School, questions the coherency and consistency of interpretation of some recent cases of the Court in the field of freedom of movement of workers and education.
