Campaign: The European integration process and transnational migration lead to local communities that become more and more diverse regarding their nationality and culture. However, citizenship and electoral rights are still defined on the basis of nationality. Additionally debates around the European Parliament Elections 2014 are still trapped in national discourses.
To trigger public debates, political action and to promote equal opportunities for participation in the EU we proposes awareness-raising and mobilizing activities.
Network: CFE participated in the replicating and adaptation workshop of DiverseCity on Boards in the Greater Toronto Area organised by the Maytree Foundation, BMW Group and KPMG beginning of October. In order to adapt this project in Berlin and Germany we created an operative taskforce in Berlin. The first steps will be a market analysis on the demand and motivation of public and private institutions in Berlin to diversify their leadership. The project started in November this year. We keep you posted! DiverseCity in Canada
Publication: Open Citizenship is a hybrid journal published by Citizens For Europe e. V. to bring EU citizenship issues to an engaged general readership. Open Citizenship combines scientific discourses on the subject of European citizenship with articles and reports on positive and negative effects of its current legal definition. The journal is a source of information on actors, scientific debates and projects concerned with European citizenship, migration and political participation in the EU.
