Speaker: Kristin Schreiber, European Commission, Director GROW B

Interventions of a Your Europe Advice legal expert and a SOLVIT centre

Objective and approach

 The Single Market is built on an impressive package of EU law and national implementing measures. As a result, working, living, shopping, doing business in another EU country should have become much easier for citizens and businesses!

How well does EU law deliver its benefits to citizens and businesses in practice?

  • Do they know what their rights and obligations are? Is it easy to get the necessary information?
  • How consistently is EU law applied by public authorities, including by local administrations?
  • What happens in cases where theory and practice of the Single Market do not match?

Come and discover how different Single Market information, assistance and problem solving services aim to fill the gap between law and practice:

Informing citizens and businesses on their rights – Your Europe

  • Providing legal advice, free of charge – Your Europe Advice
  • Inter-connecting national authorities to facilitate cross-border transactions – SOLVIT
  • Facilitating informal cooperation between authorities to solve specific problems – IMI
