What Participants Say….

“The AGG Executive Seminar has been a profoundly thought-provoking experience. Its high intellectual level and truly global approach make it particularly relevant to participants from all EU institutions.

Joel Schuyer (European External Action Service)

 

“Perfect, friendly, welcoming and generous organization, complemented by high level speakers and the most suited environment for fruitful and constructive discussion”

Elke Esders (European Parliament)

 

New ideas and new thoughts to share and to bring home.”

Monika Stafa (Journalist)

 

Scientific Coordinator: Miguel Poiares Maduro (EUI)

This Executive Training Seminar was part of a broader theme of research and teaching at the Global Governance Programme on social innovation and globalisation. The aim was to study and debate emerging forms of social innovation and their possible impact and/or contribution, either to develop more democratic and accountable modes of global governance and/or help national democracies cope with the challenges of globalisation. The focus was laid on new forms of political participation in a globalised world. Among the topics to be discussed were:

  1. new social movements and democratic contestation in the context of globalisation;
  2. new media and democracy; 
  3. new deliberative and participatory forms of democracy; 
  4. the emergence of a global public sphere; 
  5. the role of money in contemporary democracies; 
  6. “edited” and technocratic forms of democracy.

President of Latvia (1999-2007) Vaira Vike-Freiberga will give a speech on The Scorecard on EU Foreign Policy in a Globalised World.

Ben Hammersley: a lunch talk on  Long-Term Internet-Driven Social Trends. Possible future scenarios for the local, national, and international governance, as created by the internet, and other digital tools.
