EGOS Civil Society Standing Working Group 2018–22
Starting with our sub-theme at EGOS in Tallin this year (July 5–7, 2018) a five-year SWG program has been designed to bring together and discuss cutting-edge research to advance our knowledge of civil society matters. The following colloquia will be arranged in Edinburgh (in 2019) and in Hamburg (in 2020), more cities to be confirmed.
Apart from SSE and Stockholm University, the other members of the Standing Working Group are coming from Trinity College in Dublin, the Sorbonne Business School in Paris, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, CBS in Copenhagen and the University of Groningen (NL). Together they represent an emerging and cross-displinary community of European scholars from a range of disciplines such as political science, sociology and business administration.
In their confirmation letter the EGOS Board motivate their decision in this way: "We find the proposition to structure a SWG around those issues highly relevant and timely. There has been an intensification of work on civil society organizations and organizing in and through civil society in the last years and it appears like a very good moment to take the next step in the structuration and development of an engaged community of scholars on those issues. Your proposal is solid, serious, and we feel that it is very complementary to our current list of SWGs."
