Discrimination on grounds of nationality exemplified by the CJEU judgment C-709/20

Migration phenomena are currently one of the greatest socio-political challenges. They affect a number of interconnected spheres of individual functioning in specific legal realities. The aim of the article is to discuss the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union issued on 15 July 2021 in case C-709/20, which concerns the possibility of differentiating entitlements to social assistance on the basis of the status legalizing the stay of an entity. This judgment significantly alters the Court's line of jurisprudence to date in relation to the normative bases constituting the social protection of a migrant Union citizen.
