GENERAL OVERVIEW ABOUT PUBLIC DEBATES:

Activity overview: Open public debates and exchange of views and opinion between cultures will be organised in partnership with active local leaders, representatives of targeting groups (migrants/ minorities) researchers, practicipans, policy makers, media, governmental and non-governmental organisations and EU institution representatives. Each topic of debate will differ from others depending on the realities of the region and the challenges faced by EU citizens.

Outcomes:

 – Participants will gain new skills & knowledge regarding local and EU policies.
– Tolerance, intercultural dialogue and mutual understanding will be increased in the communities through dialogue and education.
– Through debates and opinions polls will be collected data (from West-Europe countries) for report on political discourse on local and EU level, on extremist or populist movements, distinct conceptions and migration/minorities challenges to propose practical solutions on project themes.
