Final Report - PROFACITY (Profane citizenship in Europe - Testing democratic ownership in hybrid situations)

Project ID: 225511
Funded under: FP7-SSH


This is the final report for the PROFACITY project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). The project examined in what way practices of actors who were in situations in which they had to make do with their faults, handicaps, lack of resources, were taken (or not) into account as alternatives to legal citizenship. The report reveals the steps that were taken to achieve its aims. It covers the qualitative surveys which were conducted within the scope of three overlapping research domains (languages and codes; attestations of identity; and tests of urbanity). The results of these surveys are then analysed and the research showed in what way there was democracy in participating in ordinary social operations in the community (such as building houses, sweeping the streets). We examined renewed and not necessarily public forms of contribution to true citizenship. And we defined new forms of participation in the public space as many moments of appropriation of one's share of democratic ownership.
