Resumo

THE LISBON TREATY, IN LINE WITH THE FAILED EUROPEAN CONSTITUTION, INTRODUCED A NEW TITLE II IN THE TREATY ON THE EUROPEAN UNION, CALLED “PROVISIONS ON DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLES”, THAT SEEMS TO COMPLEMENT THE ALREADY EXISTING PROVISIONS ON EUROPEAN CITIZENSHIP. A NEW CONCEPTION OF THE EUROPEAN CITIZEN, DISTINCT FROM THE ONE ALREADY KNOWN, IS BEING DESIGNED. MOREOVER, THE RECENT CASE-LAW OF THE EUROPEAN COURT OF JUSTICE HAS ON ITS PART REINFORCED THE EUROPEAN CITIZENSHIP THAT INCREASINGLY APPEARS AS THE “STATUS OF THE NATIONALS OF THE MEMBER STATES”, EVEN IN PURELY INTERNAL SITUATIONS
