The REMINDER project assess policy options to address real and perceived impacts and pressures that free movement may generate

A critical goal of the REMINDER project is to help European policymakers to develop policy responses that inspire public trust, ensure the fairness and sustainability of free movement, and maintain inclusive policies that reduce inequalities across the continent. To help do this, policy relevant results – including publications – from all the work packages are collected in this section of the website. These include policy analysis papers, briefs and webinars for policy makers.
