European Civic Academy 2017

30 September 2017 : 9 h 00 min - 1 October 2017 : 12 h 45 min

Join us in Brussels on 30 September and 1st of October 2017 to discuss with academics about

“NGOs as Drivers for Enhanced, Civic and Democratic Spaces in Europe”

In a context when the space for civil society to express critical views and articulate dissenting voices is shrinking both at European and national level, under threat of budgetary constraints, the rise of illiberal regimes or disproportionate security measures etc., it is crucial for civil society actors to collectively and critically assess the current challenges and build bridges with the academic spheres in order to renew and rethink their social and political action.

The objectives of this European Civic Academy are three-fold:

(1) mapping civil society needs in terms of research priorities;

(2) enable civic actors to gain knowledge about existing research, methodology and approaches to inspire a renewal of their social and political action;

(3) increase awareness among academic researchers about civil society needs and priorities and identify collaborative opportunities for future research.

The event will be highly participative and interactive and will allow you to discover new perspectives on challenges faced by civil society’, but also to reflect on our work and engagement.
