This special issue builds on debates that have been conducted online on the EUDO Citizenship forum (Bauböck and Helbling, 2011) and in panels at the International Conference of Europeanists in Barcelona (June 2011), the ECPR General Conference in Reykjavik (August 2011) and the Conference of the European Sociological Association in Geneva (September 2011). We thank all the participants for their contributions to these debates. In addition, we thank Martin Schain and Leah Ramirez of CEP for their editorial guidance, and all reviewers involved in this special issue for helping to improve the quality of the individual contributions.
