2023 Training Sessions on the Freedom of Movement Directive

03 April 2023

To facilitate the application of the freedom of movement Directive in the Member States, ECAS has developed interactive and tailor-made training for civil servants and civil society organisations supporting citizens in exercising their right to move and reside freely in the EU.

This year, we are happy to announce that we will deliver training in three more Member States this year.

If you are a public servant or a rights’ advisor helping EU mobile citizens, this is an excellent opportunity to learn, discuss and exchange best practices in your local languages with colleagues and legal experts!
