What is Europe Direct?

EUROPE DIRECT centres help bring the European Union closer to people on the ground and help facilitate their participation in debates on the future of the EU. The centres answer questions about EU policies, programmes and priorities. Staff in the centres are ready to proactively engage with citizens and stakeholders so that they feel more involved in the European project.

Kindly note that unfortunately, we cannot file or forward complaints, comment on specific EU policies or positions, or offer legal advice / interpret EU legislation.
