DESCRIPTION

This call for proposals will support projects promoting Union citizenship policies, in particular facilitating the exercise of the right to free movement and the electoral rights deriving from Union citizenship. The priority of the call will be to foster the successful inclusion and participation of EU citizens in their host EU country, and its civic and political life. This call will fund activities on developing, identifying and promoting the exchange and dissemination of best practices implemented across the EU at local/regional/national level to foster the successful inclusion and participation of EU citizens in their host EU country, and its civic and political life (e.g. through one-stop-shop information services addressed to newcomers.) Priority will be given to activities aimed at enhancing awareness of EU citizens of their rights, including the right to free movement, to increase their involvement in their host EU country and strengthen their ability to enforce these rights effectively. Priority will be also given to proposals which seek to increase participation of EU citizens, with a focus on mobile EU citizens, in the democratic process, and particularly to those proposals which seek to address the reasons for the persistently low voter turnout, and to foster awareness of and promote the right to participate in European and local elections in the host country, thus strengthening the European dimension of these elections.
