The Commission would like to hear your views

This initiative seeks to ensure full single market freedoms for associations, simplifying their cross-EU activities and promoting their fundamental rights.

Current rules create obstacles, such as additional registrations, when associations operate across EU borders. This may distort the market for non-profit organisations, affecting the EU democratic space and the exercise of EU fundamental rights.

Au cours de l'histoire, les femmes ont souvent été qualifiées de "dérangeantes" lorsqu'elles ne correspondaient pas aux normes d'apparence, de comportement, de croyance ou de situation définies par la société.
