A new CJEU ruling clarifies family reunion for Turkish workers.

A new CJEU ruling clarifies family reunion for Turkish workers.

Analysis by Silvia Adamo on the influential blog of Professor Steve Peers (Essex University) casts light on the integration requirements for family reunion for Turkish workers in the EU. In case C-561/14, Genc (12 April 2016) the Court of Justice of the European Union has decided on a case referred by the Danish Østre Landsret. The CJEU has confirmed its previous ruling on the standstill clause for spouses affirmed in Dogan (case C-138/13), extending it also to other family members of Turkish workers. This entails that the Danish rule in the Aliens Act (Udlændingeloven) requiring a potential for successful integration before family reunification with a child who has lived abroad during her upbringing is not proportional to the objective of fostering integration in the host Member State.
