Led by the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) and European Alternatives, this project aims to combine direct advocacy towards policy-makers in Brussels with the provision of support, resources and training to European citizens in order to equip them with the relevant knowledge and skills to do monitoring and advocacy around the Citizens’ Rights Directive. Project partners adopt a multi-level strategy, including the documentation of the implementation of the EU Citizens’ Rights Directive across EU Member States, EU-level advocacy, strategic use of existing EU complaint mechanisms and training of citizens’ rights activists.

Considering the fact that the last communication of the European Commission on the Citizens’ Rights Directive was issued in 2009, and taking into account the latest EU developments on the issue of free movement, the project aims to generate momentum for a new EC Communication to guide Member States in applying the Directive.
