Citizenship law in European Union
Nationality and Citizenship Act in European Union
EU citizenship was first introduced by the Maastricht Treaty, and was extended by the Treaty of Amsterdam.
Prior to the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, the European Communities treaties, provided guarantees for the free movement of economically active persons, but not, generally, for others.
The 1951 Treaty of Paris establishing the European Coal and Steel Community established a right to free movement for workers in these industries and the 1957 Treaty of Rome provided for the free movement of workers and services.
However, the European Court of Justice not as having a narrow economic purpose, but rather a wider social and economic purpose interpreted the treaty provisions.
