Until recently, illegality and EU citizenship were concepts not commonly associated with one another. Nevertheless, it is without doubt possible for EU citizens living in another Member State to have an irregular migration status. The definition of illegality in relation to EU citizens challenges the very bases of EU law. This presentation examines, at the conceptual level, who unlawfully EU citizens are in terms of EU law, what causes this type of illegality and the impact that EU citizenship can have in reconfiguring the concept of illegality.
