Mobility & the EU
In the context of the EU it is very helpful to know your rights and use them. To find out more on them in a comprehensible way go to Your Europe website (initiative of the European Commission).
When you already know your rights, but you see that the authorities don't, and you come across a problem because of incorrect implementation of your rights, contact SOLVIT - an on-line problem solving network of legal experts on Internal Market, and submit your case.
