Roxana Barbulescu: EU freedom of movement is coming under increasing pressure in the UK and other European states, EUROPPblog

EU citizens have the right to live and work in any other EU state. As Roxana Barbulescuwrites, however, this principle of freedom of movement has come under pressure from a number of recent developments. Focusing on the UK, she notes that while there are substantial economic benefits from freedom of movement, there is now growing support for putting restrictions in place. In the short term this will include putting a minimum earnings threshold on EU citizens’ access to certain types of welfare from 1 March, but across Europe far wider changes could take place if politicians attempt to placate anti-immigration sentiments among their electorates.
