• Handbook – Methodological Model of Effective Communication between Stakeholders

    The European project CHIEF builds a dialogue between young people, researchers, education practitioners, policymakers, community leaders and civil society activists in order to facilitate a future of Europe based on more inclusive notions of cultural heritage and cultural identity. This handbook presents a methodological model of effective communication between these various stakeholders and guides the CHIEF-teams in initiating, planning and implementing a Multi-Stakeholder Partnership (MSP) at the local, regional or national level. It provides methods, tools and resources to allow for an inclusive and participative multi-sectoral collaboration.

  • Diversität in Verwaltung & Co

    In 2017, the Vielfalt entscheidet – Diversity in Leadership team carried out the present survey of equality data in Berlin's public institutions. The study was developed and implemented under the scientific guidance of the Berlin Institute for Integration and Migration Research (BIM, Humboldt University). The results show how diverse the management positions are and which strategies and measures to promote diversity and equal opportunities are already being implemented in the Berlin administration and where managers see a further need to become active.

  • OC Urban Citizenship

    In this issue of Open Citizenship, we investigate how citizenship is being redefined at the local level: in cities. The authors argue that urban citizenship presents a new model for participation and inclusion of minority and disadvantaged groups that can revitalise democratic processes throughout Europe. Our authors show numerous ways that citizens are actively working to reshape their cities to meet their needs: through new forms of engagement with the city and fellow inhabitants, local projects to revitalise abandoned spaces and modes of participation that include migrants, the LGBTQ community and the disabled.

  • OC Sustainability

    In this issue of Open Citizenship “Who Cares About Sustainability?”, we investigate what sustainability means in the European context, and how current debates within sustainability can address European challenges, particularly when linked to citizen action. The authors in this issue argue that sustainability challenges current political arrangements and discourses, which limit citizenship involvement in decision-making. The articles also describe ways in which sustainability is central to participation and dialogue in our political systems and can lead to greater justice and social equity when considered as a political process, not merely a political aim.

  • OC Opportunity

    Civil society should view the on-going economic crisis in Europe as a window of opportunity. To do what? For our authors, it’s an opportunity to advocate financial regulation with teeth, to strengthen a European identity, to experiment with alternative forms of governance or to formulate a coherent, communicable vision for the European project.
