03: Citizens don’t bite: Erfolgreiche Beispiele politischer Partizipation aus ganz Europa – Ein Praxisworkshop

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Future of the EU
in englischer Sprache

Die Beteiligung von BürgerInnen im politischen Prozess steht europaweit im Zentrum zahlreicher Regierungsinitiativen. In der Praxis führt dies aber oft zu einem Entscheidungsstillstand, mangelndem Konsens oder zur Polarisierung von Meinungen. In dieser Breakout Session definieren VertreterInnen zivilgesellschaftlicher Initiativen die Schlüsselfaktoren der gelungenen Bürgerbeteiligung anhand von praktischen Beispielen aus ganz Europa.
