The new print edition of the Green European Journal has a special focus on democracy and what it means for Greens - both as an ideal in the political imaginary and as an organising principle in the day-to-day workings of parties, foundations and informal civil society groups. The issue is structured around three principles categories: the Green understanding of democracy, Green foundations in Europe and concrete initiatives to promote active citizenship.
What type of migration and asylum policies should be put in place to avoid loss of human lives, to provide a human rights-based approach to migration and to foster solidarity between EU member states in their answers to migration and asylum? These questions will be discussed from a Green perspective in a transnational seminar organised by the Green European Foundation with support of the Bulgarian Association for the Promotion of Citizens’ Initiatives, the Greek Green Institute and the Maltese Ceratonia Foundation.
This three day seminar – already a traditional offer by GEF, this year being its 5th edition - gives an overview of the different European institutions - their functions, their competences and their roles in the EU-level decision making processes. The seminar addresses those interested in Green politics and in the European Union, who would like to know more about the EU institutions and their political work.
