Mobility in Europe

Mobility in Europe

The free movement of people, goods and services is a driving force behind the sustained development of the Community. A key priority of the European Union is achievable and effective mobility for EU citizens. The Community is working to encourage open and easily accessible opportunities for citizens to move around the Union for educational, professional, healthcare or other purposes.  A major aim is to make it easier for citizens to take advantage of the benefits of European integration and the European Single Market. The EU also encourages the provision of information to give citizens a clearer overview of the existing legal framework. This is an important step towards making them aware of their rights and of the advantages they can benefit from as citizens of the Union.
