Abstract

This paper examines the potential ability of the substance of rights test introduced by the European Court of Justice in Ruiz Zambrano to change the federal balance of competences within the EU, but also questions whether it would be desirable to use this test in such a far-reaching manner.

Keywords: EU citizenship, federalism, substance of rights, fundamental rights
