‘Liquid Frameworks, Solid Institutions — building participation from the bottom up’ Summer School in Ohrid will gather participants from Southeast Europe and the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia), and more than 20 regional and international experts and lecturers.
The programme of the Summer School will combine peer-to-peer workshops, lectures, presentations of experiences, plenary sessions, panel discussions, discussion groups, reading groups and working groups. The overarching goal of the Summer School is to build the capacities of civil society organisations (CSOs) in SEE while developing and advocating for innovative models of civic-public partnership, participatory governance, active citizenship and emancipatory institutional transformation.
The program of the Summer school will focus on:
- Introduction to participatory governance.
- Democratisation of cultural public infrastructure: public goods / commons.
- Practices of civic-public partnerships in Southeast Europe.
There will be an introductory Zoom meeting for participants in August, then reading group preparation from 1-15 September, before the summer school from 19-23 September 2022.
Tuition is free and the organisers cover travel, food and accommodation costs.
