European Union Research on Governance and Citizenship in the 6th Framework Programme and the first period of 7th Framework Programme "Socio-Economic Sciences and Humanities" Programme, Project Examples, EUR 23596Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS, FP7-SSH
Research on the very working of the European institutions, the web of actors involved in deciding about the European 'res publica' - and the involvement of citizens in this - only started at the European level in the late nineties, in the 5th Framework Research Programme and flourished since then. In the 6th Framework Programme several projects -including large Integrated Projects and Networks of Excellence- have addressed these major issues, and some more are coming in the context of the 7th Framework programme -mainly in relation to global governance, multilateralism and the role of the EU in this, and on the new challenges concerning active citizenship and participation. This means that European research on governance evolved from 'latecomer' to well-grounded, and possibly international leader.
