The Nordic Council Freedom of Movement Group

The Nordic Council Freedom of Movement Group consists of MPs from all of the countries, party groups and committees on the Council.

The remit of the Group is to support the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Freedom of Movement Council in its work to eliminate tangible barriers to cross-border freedom of movement in the Nordic Region and to exert parliamentary pressure to go further and look at questions on which the Freedom of Movement Council is no longer working.

The Freedom of Movement Group usually meets 4–5 times a year, usually when the other committees meet, but also once a year for a longer working meeting. The Freedom of Movement Group also constitutes an important link between the work done on freedom of movement by the various committees of the Nordic Council and the work done by the Nordic Council and the Nordic Council of Ministers.

One member of the Freedom of Movement Group also sits on the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Freedom of Movement Council.

The Freedom of Movement Group is an informal working group under the Nordic Council Committee for Growth and Development in the Nordic Region.
