Urban Regimes and Citizenship Workshop

Swiss-Brazilian scientific cooperation project presents research for innovative urban development education model

Citizenship, democratic participation and political awareness are central issues of the project “Urban Regimes and Citizenship.” The research team will present primary results of their work and quantitative analysis about the gap in citizenship education in urban areas of Rio de Janeiro and how to address the problem. The study intends to understand democratic conditions, especially in socially vulnerable contexts to develop an innovative education model to increase community participation in many levels, such as local politics, civic and political movements, parties and policy making.

The project is a cooperation between SUPSI (University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland) and Institute of Urban and Regional Research and Planning (IPPUR) of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, funded by Swiss National Science Foundation and FAPERJ (Rio de Janeiro Research Support Foundation).
