Technological innovation is a major driver of economic growth and opportunity. Recent events and revelations have undermined trust in digital life and created the sense that we have difficult trade-offs between economic benefits, privacy and security to make.
Notwithstanding the emergence of European citizenship as the fundamental status for nationals of Member States, the tension between Member State competence and supranational obligations has become apparent in the acquisition and loss of citizenship in the European Union.
Ahead of the upcoming European Council meeting on 26 and 27 June, Vice-President Reding will outline the European Commission's contribution to the broader reflection and her personal vision on the future EU justice policy.
The conference is organised within the framework of the European Commission’s DG Justice, Citizenship and Fundamental Rights co-funded ILEC Project (Involuntary Loss of European Citizenship: Exchanging Knowledge and Identifying Guidelines for Europe).
