“Citizenship and Democracy” Research Workshop

Research workshop “Citizenship and Democracy”
September 11-12, 2017
University of Zurich, Switzerland

Organizers: DemocracyNet.eu and Doctoral Program Democracy Studies (NCCR Democracy)

The objective of this research workshop is twofold. First, we aim at fostering interdisciplinary academic discussions between DPDS students, members of the DemocracyNet.eu network, and other junior researchers interested in the study of citizenship and democracy. Each participant to the workshop will have the opportunity to present a research project or a working paper, and receive feedback from other scholars on their current research. Second, we aim at fostering collaboration and team-work among researchers by exchanging ideas, creating a network of researchers in the field, and sharing knowledge to initiate new projects. The second day will be devoted to developing new projects.
