113 views

The European Commission and the Irish Presidency launched the European Year of Citizens 2013 with an open debate with over 200 citizens in Dublin City Hall on 10 January 2013. José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Enda Kenny, Irish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU, and Eamon Gilmore, Irish Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, held a joint press conference on this occasion. The debate marked the start of a year filled with events dedicated to citizens and their rights as Europeans. 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of EU citizenship, introduced by the Maastricht Treaty in 1993. It is also one year before the European Parliament elections. At this crucial juncture in the move towards a stronger Europe, it is a fitting time to dedicate 2013 to EU citizens and their rights. Throughout the year 2013, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, and other EU Commissioners will join forces with national and local politicians to hold debates with citizens all across Europe – to listen to them and answer their questions.
