Have you ever encountered difficulties moving to another EU country? Have you ever had problems when trying to shop online from another EU country? In what kind of Union would you like to live in 2020? Tell us what you think! Between 9 May and 9 September 2012 you have the chance to give your view on your rights as an EU citizen.
The European Commissionis calling on citizens all over the European Union to help set the policy agenda for the next years and shape the future of Europe in the biggest ever EU public consultation on citizens' rights. The consultation will be open for four months, until 9 September, during which time the public will be asked about the obstacles they face in exercising their rights as EU citizens, be it when travelling in Europe, when voting or standing as a candidate in elections or when shopping online. The public consultation comes ahead of the 2013 European Year of Citizens (IP/11/959). The input received from the public will feed directly into the Commission's policy agenda and form the basis for the 2013 EU Citizenship Report, to be presented on 9 May 2013.
Participate in the public consultation by filling out a short questionnaire online (open until 9 September 2012)
