ELIAMEP to participate in ‘Towards a Citizens’ Union’ research programme

The project is geared towards enhancing the knowledge and debate about the European integration project and the role of citizens. Within and beyond a network of renowned policy institutes specialising in EU affairs, the partners intend to enhance (i) participatory and (ii) representative democracy and (iii) accountability in the EU, and thereby strive “Towards a Citizens’ Union” (2CU).

2CU fosters the dialogue between the academic world and policy-makers and to build bridges between different communities. The defined target group captures a wide cross-section of interlocutors, e.g. other think tankers, academics, politicians, national and EU-level policy-makers, representatives of civil society organisations (CSOs), and journalists.

The project’s objectives are:

– To inform and influence national and EU-level debates about the citizens’ union

– To advance knowledge and experience of (young) researchers

– To advance the study area at (inter)national level

Its activities include:

  • Organizing research workshops to simulate negotiations in the 3 key subject areas, “researchers-meet-EU policy-makers” seminars to gain feedback, and public outreach events to stimulate debate in capitals across Europe.
  • Producing a series of policy briefs, published online and disseminated widely, as well as a final report synthesising findings and offering policy recommendations.

The project will be carried out by a consortium of 19 partners
