An Empty Shell? The Protection of Social Rights of Third-Country Workers in the EU after the Single Permit Directive

publication by a member of the Interest Group
by Dr. Ana Beduschi

Dr. Ana Beduschi, lecturer in law at the University of Exeter, has published an article in the European Journal of Migration and Law. In this article, Beduschi assesses the effectiveness of third-country nationals’ social rights protection in the EU following the adoption of Directive 2011/98/EU (‘the Single Permit Directive’). She argues that despite being an important instrument allowing for a better protection of social rights of third-country nationals, the directive still reveals significant inconsistencies, such as the imposition of important restrictions on social rights while implementing the directive. Accordingly, she argues that the protection of third-country workers’ social rights in the EU still largely depends on the Member States’ political will.
