MIGRATIONS AND ASYLUM: ANALYSIS AND PERSPECTIVES: New and inherited challenges for the Union’s citizens and family members in the context of the return to the country of origin

Diana Marín Consarnau

The aim of this paper is to consider how emerging and legacy challenges contribute on the need to move towards an autonomous legal status for family reunion, at EU or internal level, especially by focusing on the Spanish case, when the sponsor is a EU citizen that returns to establish himself in his country of origin. In this context, the third-country national, as a family member, begins a migratory process. The construction of the derived rights of residence by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), together with the specific problems arising in a crisis scenario and the needs arising in the development and continuity of private international relationships, promotes an appropriate forum to consider a step forward. This should also be considered taking into account aspects of consistency in the scope of application between regulatory instruments.
