A New Era of Civic Activism in Europe

Civil Society
Date: Wednesday, 05 June 2019 18:00 - 19:30

Venue: Carnegie Europe

From climate change protests to France’s Yellow Vest movement to a huge number of new citizen forums, a more dynamic form of civic activism is taking shape across Europe.

In his new book, Civic Activism Unleashed: New Hope or False Dawn for Democracy?, Carnegie senior fellow Richard Youngs charts the global transformation of political and civic activism, highlighting its innovative forms and often dramatic impact.

To mark the launch of Civic Activism Unleashed, Carnegie Europe is pleased to host a public discussion on what this new era of civic activism means for democracy in Europe. The author will be joined by Alberto Alemanno, Jean Monnet professor of EU Law at HEC Paris; Cristina Buzasu, principal manager of the Civil Society Engagement Unit at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; and Gaëtane Ricard-Nihoul, former deputy secretary general for the Citizens Consultations on Europe at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Copies of the book will be for sale at the event and a light reception will follow.
