Main Conference

 

There is shared commitment across European countries to ensure young people acquire social, civic and intercultural competences, by promoting across the disciplines democratic values and fundamental rights, social inclusion and non-discrimination, as well as active citizenship. However, this raises many challenges, not least in an uncertain world characterized by economic crisis, increased inequality, environmental concern, high migration flows, and the rise of populist ‘post-truth’ politics. All these challenges raise questions of fairness and social justice and prompt reflection on notions related to identity, the development of capabilities, citizenship, belonging, otherness, recognition of diversity, inter-generational solidarity and active democratic participation at the personal, global and policy level.

 

In this context, proposals from across the disciplines concerned with democratic values, constructs of identity, human dignity and capacities, participation and/or citizenship education in relation to issues of social justice in formal, in-formal or non-formal contexts are invited. We welcome papers from all academic disciplines and from academics, practitioners and policy makers working both within and outside Europe.

 

Research Student Conference

The 2nd Jean Monnet CiCe Research Student Conference will precede the Main Conference will be held 06-08 June. This conference is designed to support doctoral students exploring issues concerning researching citizenship and identity. It also introduces students to multidisciplinary perspectives.

 

Past Research Student Conference papers can be found HERE.

 

Interested parties can find more information on the Research Student Conference HERE.

 

Proposals for the Main Conference

Proposals are invited on the conference themes. We welcome proposals for papers, posters, symposia and workshops.

Papers

are presented as a standard presentation, for which you will have 20 minutes to present and answer questions. There is only limited space available for presentations and the Conference Scientific Committee will decide on the presentation format. All papers are eligible for inclusion in the Conference’s Selected Papers publication. Papers for publication are selected by the Conference Scientific Committee.

 

Symposia

will group at least three linked papers, presented by a group together. The same rules apply as for papers (4,000 words etc), but you will provide your own chairperson and your time will be limited to one conference session. Therefore, if there are many papers in a symposium then each paper will have less than 20 minutes. Symposium papers are normally presented grouped together in the Selected Papers.

 

Workshops 

are interactive sessions lasting 60-90 minutes, in which participants are doing more than answering questions! You will normally need to limit the maximum number of people who might be able to participate. You may wish to provide a written account of your workshop for the Selected Papers publication, in the form of an article of 4,000 words (maximum).

 

Poster

proposals afford an opportunity to mount a standard poster (A1 size), explaining some research, projects or practices You will have the opportunity to stand by your poster and discuss it with members of the conference during a scheduled poster session. A paper based on the poster is eligible for publication in the Selected Papers.

 

Virtual Paper

Main Conference

 

At present, European societies are facing a number of challenges, not least how to respond responsibly to high levels of poverty, social exclusion, and inequalities generated by the economic and social crisis. Along with this, there is the urgent challenge posed by the current migration flows that has generated the refugee and migrant crisis in Europe, which needs to be analyzed in the context of the shared global responsibility of the EU. All these challenges raise questions of fairness and social justice and prompt reflection on notions related to human dignity, development of capabilities, citizenship, belonging, otherness, recognition of diversity, and active democratic participation at the personal, global and policy level.

 

In this context, proposals concerned with constructs of identity, human dignity and capacities, participation and/or citizenship education in relation to issues of social justice in formal, in-formal or non-formal contexts are invited.
