The future of EU citizenship

26-28 April 2017, Brussels

Could the citizenship rights enjoyed by EU citizens be under threat?

Are Europeans fully aware of their citizenship rights - and using them to full effect?

In the 21st Century, what does it really mean to be a Citizen of the EU?

It’s twenty years since the Maastricht Treaty introduced the idea of EU citizenship – but that citizenship is now under pressure as never before.

A 4-year major research project - bEUcitizen - All Rights Reserved? Barriers towards EUropean CITIZENship – has explored these challenges and can now reveal how best to respond to them.

The project’s final conference will be held at the Residence Palace, 175 rue de la Loi, 1048 Brussels on 26-28th April 2017.

Mobility and Inclusion in Multilingual Europe (MIME) – A preview of research results

27 April 2017, Brussels

The MIME project answers the Commission's request for analysis and practical orientations
regarding the handling of individual and societal multilingualism in a time of change. The
project presents several notable features. In particular, it is focused on the public policy
aspects of multilingualism, and aims to provide useful conceptual tools, helping decision
makers to weigh the pros and cons of various strategies for handling the multilingual
challenge in a variety of contexts. It is also deeply interdisciplinary and combines the inputs
of no less than ten different disciplines.

This event is primarily destined for people whose work in politics, policy or administration
leads them to ponder the advantages and drawbacks of alternative language policy choices.
We are, in particular, interested in feedback that will help us to efficiently fine-tune, for the
benefit of users, communication about research-backed language policy tools in order to
make them as accessible and useful as possible.
