Due to the European integration process it is urgent to understand how perceptions of culture and citizenship is about to take shape and how citizenship can be comprehended from different perspectives in relation to the complex European context.
At the seminar scholars from a variety of disciplines will introduce their research on how European citizens conceive of them-selves and how they act to strengthen democratic culture in its various forms. Besides this empirical-descriptive aim the scholars will also provide normative insights regarding the different ways to conceive citizenship in a European context.
