[Source: Research & Innovation] 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.
