Que fait réellement l’UE pour les citoyens? Elle utilise notamment le Fonds social européen (FSE), qui investit auprès de quelque 10 millions de personnes par an à travers les 27 États membres de l’UE. Ce livre relate l’histoire de 54 personnes, deux par État membre, qui ont saisi les possibilités offertes par les initiatives financées par le FSE. Les entretiens mettent l’accent sur le parcours d’hommes et femmes de tout âge, des adolescents aux retraités, dans les communautés urbaines et rurales, dans chaque pays de l’Union européenne. Le livre sera bientôt disponible dans toutes les langues officielles de l’Union européenne.
