»Constituting European Citizenship«
Although a European citizenship status was introduced in the Maastricht Treaty in 1992, taking on a citizen-centered perspective on the EU is still a provocation: it challenges the state-centered vision of the Union and potentially disrupts the EU’s legitimatory basis. My presentation will address the constitution of European citizenship in a double sense: on the one hand by critically reconstructing what is already constituted (EU citizenship as existing legal status) and on the other hand by reconstructing ongoing citizenship practices of (re)constituting, contesting and eventually transcending the current status. The analysis applies an enactment approach to citizenship to develop an appropriate theoretical background and analyze current empirical dynamics.
