After a successful first edition in 2016 which gathered about 200 activists from social, human rights, culture and environment organisations from all over Europe to discuss with high level academics complex questions raised by citizens’ disenchantment, practice, and expectation with regard to democracy in Europe, the second European Civic Academy will provide space for civil society actors to discuss with academics and identify priorities and possibilities for action research collaborations related to the role of CSOs in enhancing civic and democratic spaces in Europe. The discussion will focus on three different strands: 1) the impact of CSOs on democratic processes, 2) their ability to drive social change, and 3) produce public opinion on how civil society and informal citizen’s movements can work together beyond fragmentation.
