Reviews for Mobile Europe: The Theory and Practice of Free Movement in the EU

Recchi (Sciences Po, Paris) presents rigorous empirical research on the movement of Europeans across borders and the resulting integration trends of the 20-plus-year European Union (EU) project. ... this is a timely contribution to the scholarship and policy of EU population mobility. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. (A. H. Fabos, Choice, Vol. 53 (5), January, 2016) The book is an important addition to the fields of EU studies and migration studies. It examines concepts of mobility and European citizenship in new ways with more cases. It will be useful for researchers interested in the political and sociological impact of an increasingly mobile Europe. (Michael Johns, Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (2), 2016)
