Le concept de la citoyenneté européenne

Abstract : Created by the treaty on European Union, the concept of European citizenship has to be incorporated in the process of the European political integration. This concept first appeared during 1960s - 1970s, and was attached to the European parliament direct elections. The link between the concept of European citizenship and the European construction has provided an evolutionary concept of citizenship. This concept will be evaluated from two points of view. The theoretical basis of European citizenship is referred to the formal status of the European Union, while its substance will to be built around the degree of participation of European citizen in the European construction. the dialectic between federation et international organization about the status of the European union identify the essence of European citizenship as follows : 1) being the subject of community law, European citizen is defined in connection with a political entity lacking "sovereignty" strictu sensu; 2) the substance of European citizenship is considered in the scope of operation within various interests, national and European, which implies the unequal protection of different status of European citizen, i.e. the economic status, the social status and the political status. 3) Finally, the concept of European citizenship established by the treaty does not provide a concept of single citizenship, since the union has only the limited powers and the citizenship remains the prerogative of the member states by lacking of unification of national legislations.
