Date: 21 October 2022

Subject: Freedom of Movement and related rights

Format: In-person (Milan, Italy)

What is it for me – Learning Objectives: This session for Civil Servants and Civil Society Organisations aims to increase their awareness on current obstacles to freedom of movement and further develop their knowledge on the Directive 2004/38.

With 25 years of experience in advising thousands of citizens on their EU Rights, by managing Commission’s Your Europe Advice service, ECAS has accumulated in-depth knowledge on the obstacles encountered by EU citizens when exercising their freedom of movement and related rights.

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 are involved in the debate, which allows them to verify their knowledge in an interactive manner.

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.
