In the European Union, "extracomunitarian" is a formally defined title that applies to all non-European Union citizens.[1] While this technically includes citizens of non-Third World nations as the United States, Australia, Canada, or Switzerland, the word is often overtoned to refer to migrants that legally or illegally enter Europe from developing countries,[2] and hence mostly used in reference to issues such as discrimination (and integration) of immigrants, migrant workers,[3] immigration laws, and multi-ethnic society.[4]
