CELSI hosts Citizens pact workshop about work issues

Published on Sept. 3, 2013


On 15th of September, 2013, CELSI will host the Citizens Pact workshop about work issues.

The Citizens Pact is a bottom-up effort to bridge the infamous democratic deficit in Europe. This process empowers citizens to take action, to participate in the development of a European political sphere, and to ensure the 2014 European Parliament elections are truly transeuropean, rather than a sum of national logics. The Citizens Pact, launched in December 2012 , brings together a coalition of citizens and organisations joining in to advocate for concrete demands for the Europe they want to live in.

Workshop in Bratislava will concern Work issue. Five experts from academia and European institutions will discuss the most preferred proposal from the poll available here:


Ophelie Latil, Generation Precaire (NGO)

Iulius Cezar Macarie, Central European University

Alessia Fulvimari, Socio-Economic Analyst at European Commission
