The citizens’ panel was set up so that the IMA could hear directly from EU and EEA EFTA citizens and their family members. They act as critical friends to the IMA, drawing on their lived experience to support and challenge the way in which the organisation works.
Members meet virtually twice a year with representatives from the IMA team including our Chief Executive. As well as sharing their experiences of life as EU and EEA EFTA citizens, and those of their family members, panel members also give feedback on the IMA’s work.
All members are aged 16 or over, live in the UK or Gibraltar and come from one of the 27 EU countries or Iceland, Liechtenstein, or Norway.
The IMA used its social media channels, website and stakeholder organisations to tell people that it was setting up a citizens’ panel and needed people to apply.
There was a fantastic response, with the final panel being selected on a balance of the below criteria:
- Equal representation from as many EU and EEA EFTA countries that we had applicants from
- Representation from citizens living in all parts of the UK and Gibraltar
- A good reason for wanting to join the panel
- A mix of employed, unemployed, students and retired individuals
- A broad range of ages
We hope that this approach will give us better insights into the many varied experiences of citizens living in the UK and Gibraltar.
To be eligible to join the citizens’ panel, you must be aged 16 or over, live in the UK or Gibraltar and come from one of the 27 EU countries of Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway. Applications must be from individuals, not organisations.
We are always interested in hearing from eligible individuals (see below), who are interested in joining the citizens’ panel.
We will be changing the members of the panel regularly, so some members will be with us for two years and some for a year.
If you would like to join the citizens’ panel at a future date, please email email@example.com
