Having accumulated a valuable expertise in the field, we are hosting a free of charge training for Civil Servants and Civil Society Organisations with the goal to increase the awareness of local administrations and civil society on current obstacles to freedom of movement, by providing the tools to interpret and implement Directive 2004/38 on the right of citizens of the Union and their family members to move and reside freely in the EU.
Participants will be able to raise any questions linked to their daily work, and will also have the opportunity to network with other civil servants and members of the civil society.
This training is part of the EURECA project, co-funded by the European Union, and the PROMISE project, funded by the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM). Our partners on the PROMISE project, Democratic Society and Alliance4Europe, are supporting us in the training implementation.
The event will be held in Berlin. More details regarding the venue will be published shortly.
