As part of the FAIR EU project, the European Citizen Action Service (ECAS) is currently looking for 6 legal experts in the field of free movement and political rights based in the following countries: Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Luxembourg. Their main task will be to organize focus groups (one per country) in order to identify and analyse the links between obstacles to free movement and the exercise of political rights.
The selected experts will be required to carry-out the following tasks:
- Select and invite participants for the focus groups, in cooperation with ECAS, including representatives of civil society organisations, academia and national/local governments;
- Take charge of logistical aspects (arranging the venue, catering, etc.);
- Conduct and moderate focus groups: discuss the links between the obstacles to freedom of movement and exercise of political rights (based on own expertise, available research and the hypotheses developed by ECAS);
- Develop the final report from the focus groups, including a summary of the discussions and main conclusions regarding the links between the obstacles to freedom of movement and political participation. The report must be developed in English and in the language of the country where the focus group took place.
The offer for organization of each focus group can be priced up to €1,272 VAT included. Additional resources will be provided for the logistical organisation of the event (room rental, catering).
