Background information: Since the beginning of this year the Peace Institute is a partner to the project “Rights on the Move – Rainbow Families in Europe“, funded by the EU within the Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme. The project is coordinated by the University of Trento, Italy.

The project looks at the European protection of the rights of rainbow families moving and residing within the EU. The diversity of regulations about marriage and partnership, access to assisted reproductive technologies and adoption exposes these families to considerable obstacles when moving within the EU. By adopting a child-oriented approach, the project aims to unravel how freedom of movement should be read in compliance with the EU Charter, the European citizenship rights of the child and other international and supranational instruments. More information about the project is available at

We would appreciate if you could circulate information about this call among all the lawyers who might be interested.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Mojca Frelih ( Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely Yours,
ROTM (“Rights on the move”) project team
