Quarterly reports produced by our Your Europe Advice management team, together with citizens’ complaints submitted to our legal experts, have been used as evidence to contribute to a new study released by the European Parliament on recurring obstacles that EU citizens and their family members face when moving to another EU country.

The study, entitled ‘Obstacles to the right of free movement and residence for EU citizens and their families’ aims to identify the remaining transposition issues of Directive 2004/38/EC and the primary barriers to free movement (including entry, residence and access to social security and benefits, along with other barriers of diverse nature), in order to provide an assessment of the main challenges at both EU and national level, and to determine the extent to which these obstacles hinder citizens in exercising their right to free movement.
