Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Constitution and EU Accession. An Academic Platform for Discussing the Options

An academic knowledge exchange program is proposed, coordinated by the University of Milano-Bicocca in collaboration with the University of Trento and EURAC Research Bolzano, to partner with BiH public Universities. A series of workshops and a final conference shall explore Leggi tutto various options around the fundamental issues related to the constitutional challenges of EU accession. Through these activities a scholarly network shall be established which will critically accompany the political and public debate feeding in academic expertise. The results will be made available for a broader public via the OBCT TransEuropa website (in B-H-S, English and Italian) as well as in academic publications. The project will also include a technical workshop in which further cooperation activities shall be explored in order to guarantee the sustainability of the network after the end of this project. At the core of the project is a focus on the three ‘foundational’ questions, namely the formation of identities and the organization of institutions and territories. These issues are of central importance for any system of multi-level governance, conceived bottom-up from the level of local self-government to the level of European integration. Any discussion of models how to organize a peaceful living together must try to bring together the three central elements which are intimately linked, but have analytically to be distinguished: 1. What are the basic values, normative principles and rights to express all cultural, socio-economic and political identities and diversities in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a vision for the future of state and society? Which types of rights are necessary for the effective protection of individuals, groups or communities? In many public debates as well as scholarly literature, individual rights for citizens are declared incompatible with so-called ‘collective’ rights for groups or communities as precondition for the functioning of a ‘civic’, liberal and democratic state. Is such a dichotomic conceptualisation of individual versus group rights part of the solution or part of the problem? 2. What sort of institutional organization can translate these values, principles and rights into a functional system of representation and effective political participation, and which will be fit for regional and/or European integration? Any form of representative democracy needs a vision of who is to be represented by whom. Shall those who are elected represent the voters and their local or regional socio-economic interests in the respective electoral district, or rather protect the cultural identities of their voters? Are these mutually exclusive alternatives or is it possible to design a model which can serve two or more of these goals? 3. How shall these values, principles and rights be territorially organized in combination with the institutional make-up for the legislative, executive and judicial powers? What kind of federal system is Bosnia and Herzegovina, and what may be considered as an ideal combination of territorial and institutional organization of powers for the future? What are specific challenges following from the EU-integration process? The goal of the project is to illustrate the reform options for the constitutional challenges posed by EU accession and to assess the specific impact on BiH as a federal and consociational system. The project aims to learn from each others ́ perspectives and approaches and thus to enhance mutual understanding and knowledge. Hence, the above central questions shall serve as vantage point and substantial framework for a comprehensive debate. The project will bring together scholars from all over BiH as well as Italy, and other EU Member States. This will favour interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange, while discussing and developing reform options in dialogue and mutual respect. The authority of the academic institutions involved in the network and the quality of the debate and of the published results will ensure the attention of political actors. The promotion of a free academic debate, a culture of dialogue, respect and cooperation shall contribute to the public discussion and stimulate it with academic expertise on issues of priority for the political agenda. The high level of all participants – renowned scholars from Bosnian universities as well as from universities in Italy and abroad – will guarantee effective exchange and transfer of knowledge. The participants will be stimulated to continue their research and to disseminate the results of the debate also through their private and professional social networks. The results will be presented through the OBCT website (in B-H-S, English and Italian), through the publication of academic papers as well as in a final conference open to the public and media and a book containing the conference proceedings. These three levels of dissemination guarantee the reach out to different target groups.

CICERONE - Creative Industries Cultural Economy Production Network

Creative Industries Cultural Economy pROduction NEtwork (CICERONE) provides policymakers with a unique and innovative perspective from which to understand the cultural and creative industries (CCIs). Previous analyses have mapped the location and distribution of the CCIs; CICERONE innovates by exploring the flows Leggi tutto of products and ideas that generate the economic and cultural values in and of places, and which also account for the disparities between them. Moreover, CICERONE explores the evolving relationships between cultural and the economy. Place is central to this project; place as co-produced by networks: jobs, ideas, cultures and economies all come together in unique combinations in places, this is what makes them ‘unique’. The variations in local capacities to respond to global forces determine the past, present and future of all territories. By using the global production network (GPN) approach we develop a comprehensive understanding of CCIs (in the form of industries, clusters and networks). Furthermore, CICERONE will translate this new research into a stakeholder network, and an observatory, whose designs are reflective of the network approach. These will themselves be part of European capacity building which will serve to strengthen CCIs’ collective representation, empower sustainable cocreation, and spur local cultural resilience, jobs and economic activity. At its core, CICERONE provides an academic analysis harnessed to economic, cultural and social impacts in terms of local capacity building in, and across, places; as well as deepening our understanding of the inequalities and lack of diversity of social characteristic and economic employment opportunities that characterises the CCIs.

ECOHERITAGE- Ecomuseums as a collaborative approach to recognition, management and protection of cultural and natural heritage

Recent demographic decline affects unevenly different population settlements across Europe: rural areas face high rates of depopulation, while urban areas experience higher population concentrations. Spain leads rural depopulation in Europe, with only a 25.7% of its population living in rural areas Leggi tutto (Eurostat: 2017). The high rate of depopulation in rural areas also poses an important social challenge due to the related high risk of exclusion and poverty. In 2015, 25.5% of the rural population was at risk of poverty or social exclusion, while in cities it was 24%. The risk of social exclusion in rural areas affect the 27.1% of the population, while in the cities, the 24.3% (Eurostat: 2017). People living in rural areas tend to drop out of education and training earlier. In fact, according to Eurostat, the rate of young people aged 18-24 living in rural areas of the EU who neither study nor work is 3.7 points higher than people living in cities of the same age group. Given the cultural and natural richness of rural areas, heritage can definitely represent an alternative source of development for these territories. Ecomuseums work as shared processes of recognition, management and protection of cultural and natural heritage, aimed at promoting sustainable development. Ecomuseums are organised by its communities in an associated and cooperative way based on four main areas: economic, social, environmental and scientific-technological. Ecomuseums are able to generate incomes from culture, knowledge and services. EcoHeritage primary target group are rural communities, especially adult population, as well as ecomuseums in Europe. The secondary target group addressed are municipalities and local governments, cultural institutions, heritage research institutions and adult education providers. EcoHeritage will address these groups with the overall objective of contributing to the awareness and consolidation of ecomuseums as a model of sustainable and collaborative heritage management for the development of economic growth and social cohesion among rural communities in the consortium countries. The specific objectives of our project are: -To raise awareness about ecomuseums as a collaborative heritage management model, establishing a set of criteria for its recognition and a common methodology to improve its contribution to social, economic, environmental and heritage sustainability of rural areas. -To provide skills to adult learners in rural areas through the creation of innovative training materials on active citizenship promotion and participatory heritage management. -To generate steady communication networks between ecomuseums at national and European level thus fostering knowledge and good practices exchange that will contribute to the sustainability of consolidated and new coming ecomuseums. - To foster the creation of ecomuseums as an endogenous resource for competitiveness and social, economic and environmental sustainability of rural areas. To reach these objectives the following outputs will be developed: IO1 - Ecomuseums, social museums and other practices of collaborative management of cultural heritage: a report. IO2 - Ecomuseums Best Practices Manual. IO3 - Participatory heritage management toolkit and OERs. IO4 - Ecomuseums online network and web-based training app. The project consortium is made by the following partners: UJA (ES) is a university coordinating a Centre of International Excellence on Heritage (CEI Patrimonio), gathering 10 Andalusian public universities. OnP (ES) is a consulting enterprise specialised in project managing, monitoring and evaluation. The UAH (ES) is a university represented in the project by the Department of History and Philosophy where a specific line of research has been developed to study the evolution of social museology in Spain. MINOM-ICOM (PT) is an international network working on community museums, ecomuseums, museology institutes, groups focused on the organization of local cultural activities, cultural management and mediation, and grassroots cultural institutions. UL (PT) was the first university in Portugal to ensure specific teaching of museology at the masters and doctoral levels. UNIMIB (IT) is a university that has been working for years on the concept of community and sustainable local projects as a tool for the development of marginal rural territories. Parabiago (IT) is a municipality managing the Ecomuseo di Parabiago and participating in the steering committee of the Lombardy ecomuseums network and the international platform DROPS for ecomuseums and community museums. MiLA (PL) is a foundation that has disseminated the concept of ecomuseum in Poland, developing an original methodology for creating ecomuseums and supporting the development of several ecomuseums

ALLINTERACT-Widening and diversifying citizen engagement in science

Despite the efforts done to engage societal actors in scientific developments, many citizens still do not see why they should understand science or participate in it. Nevertheless, they potentially engage in science through dialogues and actions (live and digital) that are related Leggi tutto to research results. Moreover, they are willing to participate in science when they become aware of the social impacts generated by research outcomes. Therefore, the general goal of this project is twofold: on the one hand, to create new knowledge about how to transform potential citizen participation in science into actual engagement in scientific research. On the other hand, to unveil new ways to engage societal actors, including young citizens and groups that have traditionally been excluded from science. This will be done in the framework of two Sustainable Development Goals –Quality Education and Gender Equality – and with a mixed method approach, by using digital technology (social media analytics), a survey and an intervention study, including communicative focus groups. By exploring the transformation of potential engagement into actual engagement through fostering awareness of the social impact of research, this project will contribute to understand how societal actors react to and interact with scientific developments. The aim is to improve the cooperation between science and society, with diverse citizens and societal actors involved in it. The potential pair between scientific excellence and social awareness of social impact of research will be addressed alongside. This proposal has been developed by an interdisciplinary consortium in close dialogue with diverse stakeholders and societal actors. The inclusion of their voices will raise critical dimensions to successfully engage diverse citizens in science. Overall, engaging in a transformative and productive dialogue with citizens throughout the research will be key process in order to achieve the envisioned goal.
