Symposium24 May 2016, 01:00 PM | Faculty of Social Sciences, Ljubljana
We kindly invite you to Symposium on Digital Citizenship, which will be held on Tuesday, May 24 at 13 am at the Faculty of Social Sciences. The symposium is organized within the framework of the three-year research project in which we are studying participation in the information society, in conjunction with the communication of the political actors and the functioning of social movements.
The symposium is organized as part of a three year project Digital citizenship that addresses political participation which has been changing under the influence of a growing social complexity, the rise of information and communication technologies and media convergence. The research views digital citizenship as referring to citizen action in equal relations within the polity, underscoring the study of opportunities and constraints of the online environment, and considering a series of circumstances determining participation in the (European) public sphere. Attention is devoted to study communication of established political actors as well as to discuss the potential and communication of social movements differently acting as counterparts to institutional politics. The project is coordinated by the Peace Institute, Institute for Contemporary Social and Political studies in cooperation with the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana and the Faculty of Humanities, University of Primorska.
* The symposium will be in English.
