Europe for Citizens Programme 2014-2020: European Implementation Assessment

14-07-2016

The Europe for Citizens Programme 2014-2020 is an EUfunded programme that aims at contributing to a better understanding of the EU among citizens, as well as promoting European remembrance and civic participation in Europe. This programme is the third of its kind, following the 2004-2006 Active European Citizenship programme and the 2007-2013 Europe for Citizens Programme. As the current programme underwent a number of changes and adjustments, including a reduction in funding, a first examination of its functioning and implementation seems appropriate. Against this background, this EuropeanImplementation Assessment therefore seeks to provide an initial assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the Europe for Citizens Programme 2014-2020 under the new structure, and presents some preliminary findings and recommendations in this context.
