In a climate of growing disenchantment with immigration and free movement in the EU, this collection of policy papers addresses the themes of inclusion and exclusion in the EU. A number of experts explore legal and political aspects of physical and social exclusion of vulnerable groups in the EU. The collection deals with a variety of topics including the position of refugees under the EU asylum system, the social dimension of EU economic governance and the recent case law on welfare tourism from the EU Court of Justice. All papers illustrate that EU Member States try to shield the question of “who belongs” from EU interference. The challenge lies in overcoming the problems caused by this protective approach of the Member States.
