Strange Mirrors, Unsuspected Lessons: Leading Europe to a new way of sharing the world experiences

July 1, 2011 to December 31, 2016
67 months

The project’s goal is to develop new theoretical and social change paradigms based on the transnational exchange of experiences and knowledge sets. More specifically, it aims at researching to what extent Europe can learn from the non-European world, in four main areas: democratizing democracy; transformative constitutionalism; interculturality and State reform; human rights (the right to health in particular) and other grammars of human dignity. These four areas are interconnected and are conceived as crucial dimensions for social change.
The research activity will develop, in an articulate way, in countries presenting relevant experiences to the study of the mentioned areas, namely: Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, India and South Africa. The relevance will be specifically tested in the following European countries: France, Italy, United Kingdom and Portugal.
