Summary/Abstract: The notion of European citizenship is beset by a paradox. It does not include the nationals of the states of the former Eastern bloc, it also excludes foreigners from outside of Europe that have migrated there for the purposes of employment, family reunification or as a result of fleeing from political persecution, discrimination, social exclusion, torture or hunger. Western European countries pride themselves on guaranteeing their citizens the highest standards in human rights protection yet the conditions that migrant workers find themselves in are often worse than the conditions they were originally fleeing.
