Active Citizens for Europe: A guide to the EU

EU Guide coverpageThe publication, launched in the framework of the European Year 2012 of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations, provides an overview of the EU legal and political framework that supports older people as well as an update on the EU decision making process.

Together with a previous publication published by AGE “Introduction to the European Union institutions and EU policy processes of relevance to older people" (3rd edition, 2010)”, it aims to raise awareness among older citizens on how the EU functions, how decisions are made, how citizens, including older people, can enjoy their rights and seek redress when these are not respected and how they can get involved and influence the EU policy making process.

This website is developed with the financial support of an operating grant of the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Commission. The contents of the articles are the sole responsibility of AGE Platform Europe and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Commission.
