Work Package 3: Active Citizenship as a challenge for operationalisation and measurement

Leader: Jerome E. Bickenbach, The Swiss Paraplegic Foundation

Description: The objective of Work Package 3 is to develop and finalise, on the basis of an extensive review of existing approaches, a survey methodology, a model survey protocol and a framework of analysis for relevant socio-economic and process indicators for Active Citizenship – including systematic identification of physical, attitudinal and economic barriers to citizenship – that are relevant to European policy context and usable for monitoring implementation and examining Active Citizenship impacts and outcomes of European policy, and as a step towards more effective multilevel policies to remove these barriers.
