Project ID: HPSE-CT-2002-60049
Funded under: FP5-HUMAN POTENTIAL

Abstract

How is coexistence in diversity possible? In what sorts of social and public spaces can diversity be accommodated? Are there some empirical prototypes of such inclusive public spaces in Europe, which can be investigated as a model for a future European diverse society? Glocalmig sought answers to these questions in six European "glocal public spaces". It developed novel research tools for investigating the quality of citizenships in six European countries. Quality of citizenships is defined in terms of alignments and misalignments between the existing citizenship institutions/structures and citizens' and residents' preferences/interests emanating from their diverse belongings. The project also designed research tools to detect the existing institutions and structures that are inclusive and democratic enough to eliminate misalignments as well as to propose alternative ways of reducing the misalignments. These research tools have been successfully tested, and the knowledge that is created is through their use is novel and has certain potential policy implications.
