On Tuesday 27 January, Europeans throughout the World (ETTW) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) in cooperation with the Latvian EU presidency will organise a conference on 'Basic European rights to free movement under threat'.

Since the fall of the Berlin wall, the younger generation has gained Europe-wide freedom, but it is not one that can be taken for granted.

Three panels will provide recommendations for civil society organisations, policy-makers and the EU institutions:
