Call for Papers: Free Movement and Discrimination
November 28, 2011
Glendon College, York University (Toronto, Canada)
Democratic states tend to guarantee free movement within their territory to all citizens. Similarly, the European Union guarantees the right to live and the right to work anywhere within EU territory to EU citizens and members of their families. Such rights reflect the project of equality and undifferentiated individual rights for all who have the status of citizen. But they are not uncontested. Within the EU, several member states have or propose to reintroduce border controls and restrict access for EU citizens who claim social assistance. Some, most notably France and Italy, have emphasized their expulsions of Roma, which challenge human rights norms against discrimination. Within democratic states, particularly federal ones and others where decentralized jurisdictions are responsible for social welfare provision, it sometimes appears that some citizens are more equal than others. Principles such as benefit portability, prohibition of residence requirements for access to programs or rights, and mutual recognition of qualifications and credentials facilitate the free flow of people within states and reflect the attempt to eliminate internal borders. The purpose of this workshop is to explore the politics of free movement and discrimination in the EU and a range of democratic states.
Participants will be asked to revise their contributions for publication. Please send an abstract to Willem Maas (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible but no later than September 5. We will notify participants promptly following this date.
