Conference: “European Citizens’ Initiatives (ECIs): A Breakthrough or the Illusion of Inclusion?”
Mattia Brazzale, Assistant to ALDA Secretary General, took part to the conference “European Citizens’ Initiatives (ECIs): A Breakthrough or the Illusion of Inclusion?”, organised by ALDA new member, the Foundation on European Citizens’ Rights, Involvement, and Trust (ECIT).
The conference was held in Maastricht University on Friday 11th December, and gathered together several international students. The main aim of the conference was to debate the ECI instrument and how to make it more democratic and effective.
The second part of the conference, “The Implications of the Asylum and Migration Crisis for European Citizenship”, presented the interesting work of the Maastricht Refugee Project, and students debated about the issue of integration and migration.
Mattia Brazzale presented the work of ALDA during the conferences and some of our projects focusing on youth and integration.
