Abstract

Nationality law of the Member States is within the scope of EU law. General principles of EU law are applicable in the context of conferring Member State nationalities and withdrawing them. The ECJ is the final arbiter in disputes arising in this context. These most predictable conclusions were reached in the remarkable Rottmann case, shaping the new status quo in the interaction between the EU and the Member States in the sphere of nationality. This note is a detailed assessment of the case analysing its implications for the future of the interaction between the EU and the Member States in the area of withdrawal and conferral of nationality/EU citizenship, as well as for the general context of EU federalism.

Keywords: EU citizenship, law, nationality, federalism, rottmann, personal scope, wholly internal situations
