We are thrilled to announce that the launch event of the cross-party friendship group of MEPs on European Citizenship is rapidly approaching and hence we invite you to join us on 18 June 2021 from 18.00 to 20.00. Have you saved the date yet?
The event will be held in Strasbourg on 18 June, a symbolic date in a symbolic place. Due to the current situation, this will be a hybrid event, comprising of few in-person attendees and several connecting online (participants can now register via this link), and will provide international and local participants insights into the concept of EU Citizenship, how to frame it and strengthen European democracy. Such an event represents the perfect setting to discuss about the idea of developing a Statute of European Citizenship, which was already included in the final paragraph of the resolution with Maite Pagazaurtundúa’s own report on the implementation of the Treaty provisions related to EU citizenship, approved by the AFCO committee in 2018.
