One of the central ideas to the formation of the European Union is a concept known as free movement, which allows nationals of member countries to immigrate to and claim social services in other EU nations.
But with Brexit, a rising tide of nationalism in areas across the continent and ongoing debates raging over immigration policy, the law is being tested in new ways.
On this episode, Professor Dr. Ferdinand Wollenschläger, Chair for Public Law, European Law and Public Economic Law at the University of Augsburg, discusses the history of free movement and its place in today's biggest issues.
