Lecturers in Italy appeal to Commissioner Viviane Reding

On 2 October 2013 we sent an appeal to

Viviane Reding Vice-President of the European Commission and Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship from Foreign lecturers “lettori” in Italian Universities concerning The clearest mass systematic breach of free movement of workers in the history of the EU.

Commissioner Reding has an impressive record of fearlessly defending citizens’ rights to free movement within the EU. Here she is receiving an honourary degree from the University of Glasgow. The full text of our appeal can  be read here:  Viviane Reding PDF

Those of you with long memories will recall that the lettori case was launched following analysis we received from Professor Noreen Burrows, University of Glasgow,  25 years ago which concluded that Italian legislation concerning lettori was in contrast with the European Treaty – which outlaws discrimination based on nationality. Professer Burrows was recently awarded an OBE at Buckingham Palace for her service to Europe.

  1. Tony Lawson says:

    They say here in Italy that “hope is the last to die”. So let us hope that Viviane Reding has not already been contaminated by the rapidly spreading euroligarchical self-preservation virus and that she will come out with a clear condemnation of the Italian legislation.
