The CINEFOGO Network of Excellence (EU project 2005-513350) is concerned with the importance of improving citizens' participation in governance. This requires new knowledge on the role of multiple identities, active citizenship and organized civil society - see http://www.cinefogo.org/
CINEFOGO is a consortium consisting of 40 universities and research institutes, and a number of public service institutions in 15 European countries. The Network includes about 100 individual researchers. Almost half of these are women. The international coordinator is professor Thomas P. Boje with a secretariat located at Roskilde University, Department of Society and Globalization.
The CINEFOGO's mission is to generate and spread knowledge on the evolution of citizenship and multiple identities in Europe, and addressing civic apathy and social exclusion in Europe. CINEFOGO has organized the activities by giving focus on research, education and public debates within three thematic areas: "Identities, Values, and Civic Cultures - Integration and Diversity", "Citizenship and Civic Participation in Relation to Social Protection", "Multi-level Governance and Organized Civil Society".
In order to accomplish its mission, CINEFOGO has set up two equally important programmes: A programme for Integrating Research Activities and a programme for Spread of Excellence. The first is dedicated to the enhancement of integrating research activities and jointly executed research in the Network whereas the latter is inspired by the vision of an ongoing dialogue nourished by social scientists and affiliated partners from the public sphere and organized civil society.
WORKCARE - Social Quality and the Changing relationship between work, care and welfare in Europe (EU project 2006-028361) explores the relationship between structural changes, labour market, demography, welfare and economic policies at the marco level and at the micro level changes in the individual orientations to work and care.
The project looks at the different actors involved in balancing work and care: the household, individuals and the state. The work in the project will be based on the analysis of relevant indicators from existing data sources on welfare policies as well as on the socio-economic development. These analyses will be supplemented by qualitative interviews of households with dependent children in seven countries: Austria, Italy, Poland, Portugal, the UK, Hungary and Denmark.
The project will introduce methodological as well as theoretical innovations in the combination of policy analysis, qualitative and quantitative research to understand models of change and hence the development of different European Social Models. Finally, it will contribute to European policy debates by providing a better understanding of the impact of social policies on work and care, the effects of the competing demands of work and care on fertility decisions and the consequences of flexibility and working times in the organization of work, care and welfare.
The main goals of the WORKCARE project can be summarized as following:
- To describe and explain a European-wide patterning of welfare, work and care using a variety of methods and sources
- To develop and apply a social quality perspective, enabling a synthesis of macro and micro levels of analysis
