Matters Involving Third Country Nationals: A Comparative Analysis Concerning Personal Status Changes of Third Country Nationals
Abstract: Migration across the EU borders, relationships involving third country nationals and recent trends, such as the so-called “refugee crisis”, have emphasized the need for a predictable legal framework providing practicable solutions in matters involving third country nationals. In conjunction with the corresponding contribution by Marlene Brosch and Cristina M. Mariottini in this volume, this contribution is intended to assess these developments and to compare the approaches in different Member States. The focus of this contribution is placed on matters concerning the personal status of third country nationals and on the recognition of status changes having occurred in non-Member States.
