Civil society and new forms of governance in Europe - the making of european citizenship

Objective

The CINEFOGO Network is concerned with the importance of improving citizens' participation in governance. This requires new knowledge on the role of multiple identities, active citizenship and organized civil society. CINEFOGO is a consortium consisting of more than forty universities and research institutes, and a number of public service institutions in 15 European countries. The Network includes about 100 individual researchers. Almost half of these are women. The CINEFOGO's mission is to generate an d spread knowledge on the evolution of citizenship and multiple identities in Europe, and addressing civic apathy and social exclusion in Europe. CINEFOGO has organized the activities by giving focus on research, education and public debates within three thematic areas: "Identities, Values, and Civic Cultures - Integration and Diversity", "Citizenship and Civic Participation in Relation to Social Protection", "Multi-level Governance and Organized Civil Society". The mission and the themes reflect an app roach in full compliance with the objectives in topic 7.1.1 in Priority 7 of FP6. In order to accomplish its mission, CINEFOGO has set up two equally important programmes: A programme for Integrating Research Activities and a programme for Spread of Exc ellence. The first is dedicated to the enhancement of integrating research activities and jointly executed research in the Network whereas the latter is inspired by the vision of an ongoing dialogue nourished by social scientists and affiliated partners from the public sphere and organized civil society. The Network takes advantage of shared goals of excellent scientific institutions and scholars, and selected partners outside academia dedicated to and experienced in spreading information and contributin g to public debate. This interplay will ensure a broad coverage and an effective spreading of excellence.'
