«Citizenship is hereby established. […] Citizens of the Union shall enjoy the rights and be subject to the duties provided for in the Treaties. », stipulates Article 20 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the
However, do we as European citizens really know what the concept of citizenship means for us today and which concrete rights it entails apart from voting on 26 May ?
