Participate in the Summer University on European Citizenship organised by ECIT!
ALDA’s member ECIT – European Citizens’ rights, Involvement and Trust – is organising a Summer University on European Citizenship to be held from 29 to 31 August at the “Maison des Associations Internationales” in Brussels.
It is the first event in Brussels in the aftermath of Brexit bringing together people from different backgrounds - students, academics, activists and policy makers - to discuss the impact of Brexit on citizens' rights and European citizenship.
The 3-day event has a double objective: to act now by bringing together researchers, civil society representatives and officials involved with the study and defence of European citizens’ rights to free movement and EU fundamental rights and values and to think laterally about lessons to be learned from these crises for the future so that in the medium-term European citizenship can be pieced together and reconfigured.
The programme includes interesting speakers and the Summer University is also attracting participants working on projects and research related to European citizenship. About 75 participants are expected at this year’s event which will take the form of a dialogue among the three main protagonists of European citizenship: civil society representatives, academics and public authorities. Over 200 people are expected for the public debate in the evening: students as well as local and European citizens. ALDA will be represented by Aldo Xhani, Coordinator of the Citizenship Programme.
