European Citizen Initiative and Institutional Change

The instrument of the European Citizens’ initiative established in Treaty of the European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union is a field of excellence for engagement and participation to take place since it involves procedures and mechanisms that have a defined scope and purpose and where participants can understand the relevance of their arguments, proposals and activities. Also it furthers the bettering of the European Union through critical thought and leads to more open policies and legislation. This panel is focus on identifying and assessing the structural elements of a European Citizens‘ Initiative (ECI) from a critical perspective, analyzing the question of participation and addressing the “who‘s“ of the ECI, and proposing options to improve ECI and its potential without the need of introducing amendments to the European Treaties.

Chair(s): Angel Aday Jimenez Aleman / Dulce Lopes
