On 9 July 2020, the European Commission opened a public consultation on EU citizenship report 2020. This public consultation aims at collecting information, experiences and views on EU citizenship rights, i.e. with regard to:
- the right to move and reside freely within the EU subject to certain conditions
- the right to vote and stand as a candidate in European Parliament or local elections,
- the right to consular protection,
- and experiences with discrimination on the grounds of nationality.
Since 1993, the European Commission reports every 3 years on progress towards effective EU citizenship and new priorities for the years ahead in the area of EU citizenship rights. The information collected will feed into the 2020 Citizenship Report and will complement the Eurobarometer on EU Citizenship and Democracy, conducted in February/March 2020..
All citizens and organisations may contribute to this consultation. The Commission seeks to gather input from individual citizens and a broad range of stakeholders, including public authorities and administrations, national, regional and local authorities, civil society organisations, intergovernmental organisations, European political parties, EU institutions, private entities, fact-checkers, academia and researchers.
You can respond to the public consultation until 1 October 2020.
