Services, procedures, and forms can often be complicated and challenging for the local resident in any country. Nevertheless, EU and Third Country nationals (expats, refugees, asylum seekers, regular immigrants) settling down in any EU Member State often face discrimination in the public administration service sector.
The Horizon2020 project easyRights has identified three major challenges in the services that are used today – language accessibility, information adequacy, and actualization of rights. After more than 3 years of work, the team has created The Mediation Grammar – “a collection of minimum requirements for public services to guarantee the rights of any immigrant who enters the European Union. It aims to provide a common basis for the harmonization of public services throughout Europe”. The proposed document is on the way to be become recognized by the CEN (European Committee for Standardization).
The Mediation Grammar Team is organizing the last CEN workshop on February 21st, 14.30 – 16.30 CET online, and invites all interested to contribute and participate.
