European citizens in Brussels: what messages?

This synthesis by Virginie Timmerman summarises the exchanges between 52 European citizens from 18 member states about their vision of the EU and its communication channels. It happened on 4 May 2014, in the framework of our project “Horizon EU”.

4 May 2014, a few weeks before the European elections, Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute organised the second stage of the project “Horizon EU : European citizenship, a horizontal development” bringing together 52 citizens from 18 European Union member states in Brussels so that they could discuss their vision of the EU and their means of access to the EU. This synthesis covers the main points of the discussions of the 52 European citizens.


Two issues were addressed : 

1. What is the general attitude vis-à-vis the EU and the crisis?

2. Towards a more direct communication between citizens and institutions ?
