FAIR EU (Fostering Awareness Inclusion and Recognition) aims to foster the successful inclusion of EU mobile citizens in their host EU country’s civic and political life through the provision of a holistic approach to tackling obstacles they face when exercising their rights.

Both free movement and political rights of EU mobile citizens are intimately related: the fact that exercising political and civic rights is dependent on the implementation of free movement rights lies at the heart of our approach.

This link will be examined through a number of activities:

  • Research and analysis to formal and informal obstacles to both free movement and political rights
  • Research on the participation rates of mobile EU citizens in local and European Parliament elections.
  • Focus group meetings in EU Member States which attract the highest number of EU mobile citizens
  • Boosting local campaigns for the upcoming local elections in Belgium, and an EU-wide campaign for the European Parliament elections 2019
