    Promoting EU citizens' mobility

    On 27 January 2015 the Latvian Presidency of the Council of the EU, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Europeans Throughout The World (ETTW) jointly organised a conference entitled "Basic European Right to Free Movement Under Threat". Despite being the EU's most popular achievement, the right to free movement has faced increasing criticism from within the Union. Three panels at the event sought to clarify the upcoming political agenda, present evidence on the benefits and challenges in relation to free movement within the EU and counter the misperception of migration.

    First European Migration Forum: the human face of migration

    We call them asylum seekers, refugees, migrants. They come from various countries and have lived through different experiences but all look for the same: a peaceful life.

    The first European Migration Forum, jointly organised by the European Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), was held on 26 and 27 January at the EESC in Brussels. The Forum gathered inputs from national and international experts and top EU officials, but also testimonials from refugees and rescuers, who shared their real-life experiences and gave a face to migration flows, often wrongly portrayed in the media. Underlining the need for greater protection of asylum seekers and refugees coming to the European Union, the event, which brought together more than 200 participants, also discussed possible approaches to address people smuggling and human trafficking.
