The Conclusion summarizes the book’s main findings. In particular, it emphasizes that contextualized approaches are able to explain the interplay between the internal and external dimensions of EU free movement law, and to describe how such interplay fits within the scheme of European constitutionalism, in a way that de-contextualized approaches are unable to. However, in order to be able to analyse how the internal and external dimensions interact, de-contextualized normative theories must first be fleshed out on their own terms, while the external dimension has to be fully understood as well. It is only after these steps have been taken that contextual approaches—which acknowledge the feedback loop between the internal and external dimensions, and study how these dimensions interact—are able to develop better descriptive and prescriptive approaches to EU law.
