ECAS Conference report “24 Years of EU Citizenship: What We Stand to Lose”

On 18 May 2016 our cooperation organisation ECAS organised the Conference “24 Years of EU Citizenship: What We Stand to Lose”, to discuss the achievements and challenges of EU Citizenship.

Throughout the various presentations and interventions, one common message stood out: However crucial the role of EU institutions may be in advancing EU Citizenship, Member States share also their responsiblity in making it happen. Another key message was that more information and in particular civic education is needed to raise citizens’ awareness of their rights.
