IMA launches third annual survey to measure EU citizens’ trust in public bodies to protect their rights

The Independent Monitoring Authority for the Citizens’ Rights Agreements (IMA) is seeking the views of European nationals and their family members in its third annual survey.

The online survey will measure citizens’ awareness of their rights, their trust in public bodies to protect their rights, and their awareness and experiences of the IMA.

The IMA is interested to hear from all EU, EEA EFTA citizens and their family members living in the UK and Gibraltar, but particularly citizens from Sweden, Bulgaria, Romania and Norway this year as the number of responses received by these citizens in last year’s survey were not reflective of the size of these communities in the UK and Gibraltar.

The IMA will work closely with other organisations such as EU Embassies and advocacy groups to ensure the survey reaches as many of these citizens as possible.

The findings will provide a measure of the IMA’s progress since it became operational in December 2020 and inform its ongoing programme of work.

The IMA will publish a report with the findings following its closure.

Citizens who feel their rights are not being upheld are also encouraged to contact the IMA.
