|Grant Period||May 01, 2011 - August 31, 2011|
The project focuses on three interrelated goals:
- Contribute to increase the awareness of both politicians and civic activists of the role of collective mobilizations as a vital resource of democracy providing the opportunity of a better understanding and a consensual reformation of society;
- Allow a better evaluation of the social significance of collective mobilizations on both sides: so that politicians should be capable of grasping their reformist potential and work out of it productive policies, and social actors should be capable of better formulating publicly acceptable causes and better articulating the public benefits they imply;
- Improve considerably the communication between politicians and civic activists in order to avoid clashes of misunderstanding and facilitate the solution of social conflicts.
