'Profane citizenship in Europe - Testing democratic ownership in hybrid situations', Lyon, France
An event entitled 'Profane citizenship in Europe - Testing democratic ownership in hybrid situations' will take place from 19 to 21 September 2011 in Lyon, France.
The symposium will look at new forms of citizenship that are experimented with by people living in hybrid situations - i.e. not strictly within the norm - and that modify the outlines of juridical citizenship. Those forms of citizenship imply practical activities connected with existing schemes or milieus, and what is at stake is the continuous invention of the democratic principle itself.
The event will also try to determine where and when the idea of 'profane citizenship' has impacted the recent transformations of democracy in various national frameworks, by concentrating not only on the juridical concepts of citizenship but also on its corresponding sociological configurations.
The symposium is being organised by the EU-funded 'Profane citizenship in Europe - testing democratic ownership in hybrid situations' (Profacity) project. It seeks to explore and understand how disadvantaged groups of individuals successfully participate in social, economic and cultural life of European societies.
