Description:

The founding fathers created the European Union as a space of freedom and justice, which by bringing peace and economic prosperity was meant to prevent Europe from ever facing the destruction caused by the two World Wars. At first the emphasis was placed on the economic integration and one of its key elements was represented by the freedom of movement. The free movement of goods, capital, services and people was first mentioned in the Treaty of Rome and is also the guiding principle of the Single European Market. The free movement of persons is the first of the four rights defining the European Citizenship and therefore also an element of the political union. Despite being perceived as the first and foremost asset of the European Union by half of its citizens, the ‘freedom to travel, study and work anywhere in the EU’ has nonetheless generated many debates among the Member States.
