Intra-EU mobility is one of the rights inscribed in EU citizenship. Yet when leaving the EU, EU citizens are treated as citizens of their member state. The EU has recently developed initiatives to politically involve Europeans outside Europe. This may constitute a step towards an EU emigration and diaspora policy. This talk discusses whether it is realistic to expect the EU to develop such a policy. Three issues will be considered: EU identification among the EU migrants; diversity of ethnic origins among the European emigrants and diaspora members; and the developing culture of mobility.weinar-research-seminar-oct-31-2016-poster-draft-rev-cs_ah
