In line with its activities in the field of citizenship, Pour la Solidarité wishes to promote the European Citizen Initiative “Let me Vote” which aims to reduce the democratic deficit by granting all mobile Europeans the right to vote not only in local and European elections, but also in regional and national elections in the State in which they live.

Whatever the reason, European citizens are often moving and settling down in European member states other than their country of origin but their participation in the democratic life of their immigration countries remains very low.
This is why the European think tank Pour la Solidarité and 5 other European partners set up the project ‘Access to Rights and Civil Dialogue for All’, co-financed by the DG justice programme “Fundamental rights and citizenship” whose main aim was to address the lack of migrants’ participation to the political life of the host countries.
For this project, the partnership drafter a Comparative study on "Political and Social Integration of Migrant Communities". This study is a comparison of national studies that were conducted in the member states involved in the project. Each of these national studies focused on a specific migrant community: Portuguese migrants living in France, Polish migrants living in Belgium, Bulgarian migrants living in Greece and Romanian migrants living in Italy and Spain.

European Union citizens are often moving and settling in European member states other than their native country. Member states population is increasingly heterogeneous and becomes more European. Nevertheless the participation of these EU migrants in the democratic life of their immigration countries remains very low.
In relation with the opening of the European Year of the Citizens, this event tried to assess the role of public authorities, civil society organizations and political parties in the participation of European citizens residing in another member State than their own, with a special focus on women participation.
The objective of the conference was to present and debate on the “Charter of European citizens’ participation in the EU”. The outcome of the debate completed the results of the project “Access to Rights and Civil Dialogue for ALL”
