Panel on the European Citizens’ Initiative at the ECPR General Conference

Katrin Böttger, Deputy Director of the Institut für Europäische Politik, and Annette Knaut, University Koblenz-Landau, organised a panel on ‘The European Citizens’ Initiative: Strength­ening European Democracy?’ at the 2013 ECPR General Conference in Bordeaux. Five research papers were presented at the panel, which discussed method­ological and theoretical challenges of this new instrument of partic­i­pative democracy on the EU level. These research papers will be published with additional articles in a book in 2014.

The abstract of the panel at the ECPR General Conference 2013 is available on the ECPR website.
