  • ECIT Summer University

ECIT Summer University “Countering threats to European citizenship across borders, reconfiguring its future” took place last week at the Maison des Associations Internationales (Brussels). About 75 participants participated to the Summer University which will take the form of a dialogue among the three main protagonists of European citizenship: civil society representatives, academics, students and public authorities. Marie-Hélène Caillol was invited as a speaker for the panel “Enacting European citizenship” where she had the opportunity to introduce the #CitizensRoute73 project.
