From 22 to 26 February, ALDA and its partners of the consortium ReCriRe are successfully holding the first General Assembly meeting of 2016. The event is taking place at the Committee of the Regions and at the office of the Council of Europe in Brussels. The meeting is an occasion to gather together the sixteen Universities and Research centers, covering 13 European countries, to advance the research on what kind of social identity change is occurring in Europe in time of crisis.
The General Assembly provides the partners with the opportunity to finalize the upcoming meetings of the main body of the consortium and to revise the key tools of the research such as the Communication and Dissemination Plan, the Gender Strategy and Data Management Plan. Participants are also discussing the first results of the Working Package 3 related to the multilevel analysis of the symbolic universe. As action plan for the upcoming 12 months, they are developing the overall approach of the case studies of policies.
The seminar “The socio-economic crisis and its impact on European societies and identities: how to shape social policies in today’s Europe” is a key moment to discuss the assumptions of the project and its current outcomes with policy makers, civil society and social science experts. The objective of the seminar is to identify innovative responses to the crisis through policies able to strengthen the resilience of societies, renew the European integration and identity and at the same time strengthen the sense of solidarity and the public sphere.
The three-year project, funded under the call Europe in a changing world – Inclusive, innovative and reflective societies, started in May 2015. It is aimed at analyzing the symbolic background of European societies and the impacts of the socio-economic crisis on them, in order to frame better policies at local, national and European level.
