The EXPULCIT project seeks to generate knowledge on the topical issue of expulsion of EU citizens and promote debate among academics, practitioners, and civil society concerning the meaning of expulsion practices in the context of EU citizenship. Although EU citizenship is described as destined to become the fundamental status of the nationals of the Member States (MS), EU law allows the expulsion of EU citizens and their family members from their host Member State, if certain conditions are met. From the perspective of the general theory of citizenship, this aspect of EU citizenship is highly problematic since it is generally understood that international and human rights law do not allow states to expel their own nationals. This state of affairs raises a series of normative and empirical questions around the meaning of expulsion, the legal rules applicable (international, EU, national and their interactions), their interpretation and application and not least, their impact on affected EU citizens and their family members.
