WP50: European and the Middle East Universities
Social participation, Democratisation and Organised Civil Society – dialogue between European and the Middle East Universities
CR1 - Roskilde University (DK)
WP50 Responsible for Spread of Excellence
The aim of this WP is to create future cooperation between the CINEFOGO Network and scientific scholars from universities in the Middle East countries.
Different types of cooperation are under scrutiny. Primarily, however, the cooperation should be focussed on themes closely related to ‘social participation, democratisation and organised civil society’ centred around topics which are the core themes of the CINEFOGO network:
- Active citizenship: to promote citizens’ involvement in policy-making
- Organised civil society: to understand the impact of different forms of citizenship and civic participation
- Multiple identities: to identify and develop factors that help co-existence among different social groups
The WP is a concretisation and continuation of the activities which have taken place within related WPs such as WP37 (EU Aid Policy, Civil Society North and South) and WP43 (Learning between North and South)
