September 28, 2015

From June 29 until July 2 2015, the Faculty of Political Science and Hotel Dubrovnik in Zagreb (Croatia) hosted the 2015 bEUcitizen Annual Conference. The second consortium meeting included also a two-day international and interdisciplinary conference on the theme: “Being a citizen in Europe” (29-30 June). During this two day conference, researchers from the bEUcitizen research project and external scholars, participating in panel discussions, which were divided into four streams, talked about different aspects of European citizenship. On Monday June 29 a parallel workshop (“Breaking down barriers: future scenarios on youth and citizenship in 2030 – Youth and access to education, labour and political decision-making”) gave the opportunity to twenty students and young professionals to discuss different future scenarios for youth-citizenship. The outcomes were presented during the Conference closing.The second part of the Conference was dedicated to the Work Package meetings, where researchers discussed the content of their work, the progress made so far and looked ahead, planning the activities for the coming two years.
