Legal form
European Citizens' Initiative (legal instrument)
Objectives

The goal of this initiative is simple: “We will convince the European Commission and the European Parliament to pass a regulation and/or decision that will allow UK nationals to keep their EU citizenship regardless of Brexit negotiations, and with enough public pressure we will force the UK to reciprocate these rights by taking our case to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) before withdrawal negotiations are finalized.

Strengths

Unlike any other petition or initiative, this European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) is based on primary law, supported by secondary law and it was was pre-designed with the goal of reaching the CJEU, which is the ultimate and final authority in all matters regarding the “Citizenship of the Union” that was established in 1993 by the Maastricht Treaty.
