EWC and PIDOP consortium agreed on cooporation on a series of Educators’ Consultations in 2013
On April 16 and 17, 2012 the second international conference on the project Processes Influencing Democratic Ownership and Participation/ PIDOP was held at Surrey University/UK. PIDOP is a multinational research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme. The project has examined the processes which influence democratic ownership and participation in eight European states – Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey and the UK. A special focus has been directed towards minorities – giving relevant insights in minority youngsters’ ambitions to participate and their experiences with political and civic participation.
The EWC was represented by Claudia Lenz who presented a paper on “Memorial sites as arenas of diversity and empowerment”.
At a post conference meeting, the PIDOP consortium confirmed plans to cooperate with the EWC on a series of dissemination events; the Educators’ Consultations in 2013 will focus on the PIDOP findings.
Educational institutions in the countries where PIDOP research has been conducted are encouraged to host such dissemination events or express their interest in taking part.Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
