Details for LGBT families - and the free movement directive

Name:LGBT families - and the free movement directive

free_movementILGA-Europe, together with national LGBT organisations, have campaigned vigorously for an inclusive definition of family within the new EU Citizens Directive, (2005).

The Court of Justice has emphasized that free movement is a fundamental right of EU citizens, regardless of the reason why an individual decides to live in another Member State. Consequently, in 2001, the European Commission proposed replacing the various laws covering workers, students, etc with a single Directive on the free movement rights of all EU citizens. The Directive took more than two years to negotiate and a central issue was the definition of the ‘family’ of an EU citizen.
