European Citizens Abroad is a pro-EU international citizens' campaign focused on education, advocacy, and EU policy by and for citizens leaving abroad. Our main subjects of interest are European Citizenship, Voting Rights and Procedures, Young Europeans, International Affairs (the EU in the World) and International Business.
We believe that living abroad is a crucial step toward understanding what European citizenship really means, and we want to leverage the strengths and experience of our expatriates for the benefit of all.
