But it is also based on the idea according which professional mobility is always a source of empowerment and growth for all the actors involved: the mobile worker, who will live new cultural, personal and professional experiences, and the employer, who will benefit from a multi-cultural staff characterized by different and complementary approaches, know-how and professional backgrounds. Movement of people means movement of cultures, intelligences and ideas and “positive contaminations” between European workers and citizens.
Mobility is also one the means promoted by the European Commission to strengthen the European citizenship, reinforcing the feeling of belonging in a common society and limiting stereotypes and racist phenomena. Professional mobility enables the construction of a citizenship based on reciprocate knowledge and on the sharing of everyday life.
