01 January 2018 / 01 December 2020

EU-CITZEN establishes a new Academic Network on European Citizenship Rights aimed at providing the European Commission with the best independent scholarly knowledge and advice on Citizenship of the Union rights and related policies, and their implementation in EU Member States and other third countries of relevance. EU-CITZEN will secure inter-disciplinary expertise and a forum for discussion on all issues and questions to be covered in the European Commission’s 2019 Citizenship of the Union Report and the 2019 European elections.

EU-CITZEN brings together a network of academic and research institutions and a Brussels-based think tank, along with a pool of national experts, which are uniquely positioned to deliver the multifaceted set of Tasks envisaged in the Tender Specifications.

The Network has been designed around five main Thematic Working Parties, corresponding with the five main “pillars” or rights-based dimensions envisaged by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) under the heading of ‘Citizenship of the Union’ and corresponding EU Charter fundamental rights: First, EU citizenship and non-discrimination (including minority rights) – Article 18 & 19 TFEU; Second, National Citizenship: Acquisition and loss – Article 20 TFEU; Third, EU citizenship and free movement & social security – Article 21 TFEU; Fourth, EU citizenship and electoral rights – Article 22 TFEU; Fifth, EU citizenship and diplomatic & consular protection – Article 23 TFEU. An additional Thematic Working Party will cover ‘horizontal aspects’ of relevance to the previous five components of Citizenship of the Union, including citizens’ initiatives, the right to petition and good administration (Article 24 TFEU).
