Ettore Recchi is Professor of Sociology at Sciences Po, France, and a member of the Observatoire Sociologique du Changement. He has taught at the University of Chieti-Pescara, the University of Florence, the European University Institute and the University of Michigan. His main research interests are mobilities (in their different forms), social stratification, elites and European integration. From 2002, he has served as coordinator of three large-scale international research projects on mobility in Europe (titled Pioneur, Moveact and Eucross) funded by the European Commission.
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)
