24 Years of EU Citizenship: What we stand to lose

24 Years of EU Citizenship: What we stand to lose


Nearly 25 years after the concept of EU citizenship was first enshrined in the EU Maastricht Treaty, it is time for a thorough assessment of the key achievements and the pending challenges where more work remains to be done in order for citizens to fully reap the rights and privileges that come with it.

The conference will analyse the main achievements and challenges of EU citizenship in the context of the current political developments. National examples will be presented on how the rights and values associated to EU citizenship are implemented in practice in the Member States. Civil society representatives will also discuss trends and analyse existing tools and initiatives of civic engagement throughout the EU in view of formulating recommendations for fully tapping the potential of EU citizenship.

Date: 18 May 2016, 10.00am - 17.00 pm.

Venue: Delegation of the Government of Catalonia to the EU (Rue de la Loi 227 – 1040 Brussels)
