Commission report on European citizens’ initiatives

European Citizens InitiativeThe European Citizens’ Initiatives “ECI” that were planned for in the Lisbon Treaty and that entered into force in 2012 have mobilised six million Europeans over the last three years.
The ECIs aim is to give European citizens voice regarding major issues, but very few of these initiatives have succeeded in overcoming the initial stages of the process. An ECI must collate 1 million signatures in the areas for which the European Commission is competent, only three of which have managed to do so far. Improvements and modifications might however follow the report.
