The European Union Center of Excellence and Center for West European Studies at the University of Washington, as part of the Global Focus lecture series and as the keynote for the Migration and New Citizenship in the European Union conference, presented this lecture on April 1, 2010 at the UW.
Events of the last two decades have conspired to raise the importance of migration in the European Union. In 2004, the European Commission issued its first annual report on migration and issues of the movement of workers across national lines, political security, demography and population decline, and visa and asylum policies. The report also addressed border security, the economic, social and political rights of EU citizens and third country nationals, enlargement issues, and the role of courts as issues of growing importance and public concern. It is becoming evident that issues related to migration are not confined to matters of the movement of people but rather the definition of citizenship and national community.
