Freedom of movement across Member States is one of the core values of the European Union and is closely linked to European citizenship. There is, however, a heated debate in many of the host Member States about the impact of the rising inflow of mobile citizens on their public services. This research project aimed to examine the extent to which mobile citizens from the central and eastern European Member States (the EU10) take up benefits and services in nine host countries. It also provides a demographic and socioeconomic profile of EU10 mobile citizens and identifies initiatives aimed at integrating them in the host countries and providing them with access to benefits and services. The main finding of the report is that overall take-up of welfare benefits and services by EU10 citizens is lower than that of the native population of the host country, especially social housing and pensions. However, their take-up of certain specific benefits, mainly employment-related benefits (unemployment and in-work benefit), is higher.

    Dimension sociale de la mobilité intra-UE: impact sur les services publics

    Auteur(s): 
    Eurofound

    La libre circulation des citoyens dans les États membres constitue l’une des valeurs fondamentales de l’Union européenne, et elle est étroitement liée à la citoyenneté européenne. Un vif débat agite toutefois de nombreux États d’accueil, à propos de l’impact de l’afflux croissant de migrants sur leurs services publics. Ce projet de recherche visait à examiner dans quelle mesure les citoyens mobiles de dix États membres d’Europe centrale et orientale avaient recours aux prestations sociales et aux services publics dans neuf pays d’accueil. Il fournit également un profil démographique et socio-économique des citoyens mobiles de ces dix États, et identifie les initiatives destinées à les intégrer dans les pays d’accueil et à leur fournir un accès aux prestations sociales et aux services. La principale conclusion du rapport est la suivante: dans l’ensemble, les citoyens de ces dix États ont moins recours aux prestations et aux services sociaux que les populations autochtones des pays d’accueil, notamment en ce qui concerne les logements sociaux et les pensions. Toutefois, ils utilisent davantage certaines prestations spécifiques, en particulier celles qui sont liées à l’emploi (allocations de chômage et prestations accordées aux travailleurs).
