Citizenship after Orientalism: enacting Europe in times of crisis

Wednesday, 27 March 2013 (All day), European Parliament (morning) and European Economic and Social Committee (afternoon), Brussels

2013 as the European Year of Citizens is a time to reflect on the current crisis and the future of European citizenship. The Oecumene team is organising an event that will respond to a double purpose. Divided in two sessions, the aim of the morning session is to hold a debate on how European citizenship is constructed, and how it can become genuinely open.

These topics will be addressed by a wide range of speakers including:

Engin Isin, The Open University

Rosi Braidotti, Utrecht University

Rui Tavares, MEP
