Benefit tourism? The EU Court of Justice´s latest praxis regarding economically non-active union citizens and their right to social benefits (2015:24epa)
The free mobility of EU citizens imply a right to be treated equally with respect to social benefits in the new host country. However, some member states have attempted to restrict the ability of economically non-active persons to make use of these benefits. In this publication the author explains how the European Court of Justice over time has changed its position and increasingly given its consent to this view. Possibly a reaction to the rising apprehension among member states with respect to social tourism.
The publication is in Swedish and is a part of the SIEPS project Social Europe.
