European Year of Citizens 2013 (EY2013)
2013 is the European Year of Citizens and will focus on what has already been achieved for citizens and how citizen's expectations of their rights, and opportunities, will be met in the future.
Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the introduction of EU Citizenship it is also the year when the European Commission will adopt its next Citizenship Report which will present further targeted EU initiatives to remove the remaining obstacles that stop citizens fully enjoying their rights.
As part of the Year, politicians have started holding debates with citizens about the future of Europe and these will continue to be held across the Union during 2013. To join the debate and get involved in the European Year of Citizens visit: europa.eu/citizens-2013/en
