She was speaking ahead of a Citizens’ Dialogue with more than 500 citizens and Italy’s Minister for European Affairs Enzo Moavero Milanesi to be held in Trieste (Italy) on 16 September.

Monday’s event is the 29th in a series of Citizens’ Dialogues that European commissioners are holding all over the European Union together with national and local politicians and members of the European Parliament. Each debate is centred around three themes: Europe’s way out of the economic crisis, citizens’ rights and the future of Europe.

“This cross-border Citizens’ Dialogue in Trieste, bringing together people from four different neighbouring countries, is a great example of what a borderless Europe truly signifies,” added Reding. “We should never forget that each and every European citizen’s right to free movement is something to be cherished and protected. It is not up for negotiation. Populist scaremongering about welfare tourism has no place in Europe. We must stay true to the principles that form the basis of the European Union, and free movement goes straight to the core of what the EU is and represents. I look forward to hearing what Europe is to the Italians, Austrians, Croatians and Slovenians coming together in Trieste.”

This Citizens’ Dialogue in Trieste is the first such event involving a multinational European public. It is also the culmination of a series of Dialogues which took place in Italy over the past ten months: Six Dialogues were held across the country, starting in November 2012 and all leading up to the final event in Trieste.

The debate will take place on Monday 16 September between 14:30 and 16:30 hours at the Palazzo dei Congressi, Stazione Marittima, Trieste. It will be moderated by Mr Federico Taddia – an Italian journalist from Radio 24 known for his weekly programme on Europe “l’Altra Europa” (“The other Europe”).

O čemu se radi u Dijalozima s građanima?

U siječnju, Europska komisija započela Europsku godinu građana (IP / 13 / 2), a year dedicated to citizens and their rights. Throughout this and next year, members of the European Commission, together with national and local politicians and members of the European Parliament are holding debates with citizens about their expectations for the future in Citizens’ Dialogues all over the EU.

Potpredsjednik Reding je već održana rasprava u Cadiz (Španjolska), u Grazu (Austrija), Berlin (Njemačka), u Dablin (Irska), u Coimbra (Portugal), u Solunu (Grčka), U Brisel (Belgija), te u Esch-sur-Alzette (Luksemburg), Varšava (Poljska), Heidelberg (Njemačka), Sofija (Bugarska) i Namur (Belgija). Mnogo više Razgovori će se održati diljem Europske unije tijekom 2013 iu prvih nekoliko mjeseci 2014 - što će europske, nacionalne i lokalne političare koji sudjeluju u raspravi s građanima iz svih sfera života.

Puno je postignuto u dvadeset godina od uvođenja građanstva EU: najnoviji EU pregled shows that today 62% of citizens feel “European”. Across the EU, citizens are using their rights on a daily basis. But people are not always aware of these rights. For example almost seven out of ten Italians (65%) say that they are not well informed about their rights as EU citizens.

This is why the Commission has made 2013 the European Year of Citizens. The Citizens’ Dialogues are at the heart of this year.

Zašto je Komisija to sada?

Because Europe is at a crossroads. The coming months and years will be decisive for the future course of the European Union, with many voices talking about moving towards political union, a Federation of Nation States or a United States of Europe. Further European integration must go hand in hand with strengthening the Union’s democratic legitimacy. Giving citizens a direct voice in this debate is therefore more important than ever.

Što će biti ishod dijalozima?

Povratne informacije od građana u dijalozima pomoći će voditi Komisiju kao što sastavlja Priopćenje o budućnosti Europe. Jedan od glavnih ciljeva dijalozima će također biti pripremiti teren za 2014 europskih izbora.

Na 8 svibnja 2013 Europska komisija objavila je svoju drugu EU Državljanstvo izvještaj, Koja ističe 12 nove konkretne mjere za rješavanje problema građana još uvijek imaju (IP / 13 / 410 i MEMO / 13 / 409). The Citizenship Report is the Commission’s answer to a major online consultation held from May 2012 (IP / 12 / 461) and the questions raised and suggestions made in Citizens’ Dialogues on EU citizens’ right and their future.
