"The IALS is working on a new research project - ON THE MOVE: The reality of free movement for young European citizens migrating in times of crisis.


The project objective is to look into the reality of free movement from the viewpoint of young Europeans (age 25-35). We are especially interested in real and perceived obstacles and barriers when moving to another EU country, in practices that promote or hinder the enjoyment of this right and in barriers of EU internal mobility. As a project result we want to propose solutions (legislative and non-legislative) for making the right to free movement effective.

To understand the daily practice of free movement we are looking for interviewees:

  • UK citizens aged between 25 and 35 years, who wish to move or are preparing to move to another EU MS
  • Citizens from the following EU MS: Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, France, Cyprus, Estonia or Italy, who moved to Austria at the age of 25-35

The experience of movement can be related to any reason, excluding organized movement as in the case of studies or posting in the context of employment. Focus lies in the experience of individuals who have to make arrangements on their own and are not facilitated by an organized context (university, company etc.).

The interview will take about one hour. Data will be used anonymously and only for this study."
