A second workshop of the EURA network on local state-society relation took place on the Greek island of Hydra on the 11th and 12th of May 2018.
The workshop was focused on the preparation of a book in which theoretical chapters as well as country chapters on local state-society relation in Europe will be presented. It will summarize the results of the work of the network reached so far.
Furthermore, the participants started to develop a questionnaire which will be sent to actors involved in selected local state-society network in twenty European countries.
Both drafts of book chapters and a draft of the questionnaire will be discussed at a next workshop in March 2019 which will be organized in Aveiro (Portugal).
The following colleagues participated at the Hydra workshop: Dubravka Jurlina Alibegovic, Koenraad de Ceuninck, Björn Egner, Grétar Eythórsson, Adam Gendźwiłł, Hubert Heinelt, Nikos Hlepas, Allister Jones, Max Kayser, Jakub Lysek, Luis Medir, Carmen Navarro, Werner Pleschberger, Paula Russel, Cristina Stănuş, Pawel Swianiewicz and Filipe Teles.
GAM.15 will be dedicated to territorial justice. The notion of territorial justice relates to the spatial dimension of social justice; it refers to a system of spatial planning in which everyone is granted the sameconditions of access to public goods and services (such as transport infrastructures, social services, health care, education, culture, employment) thus enabling access to the advantages of a societal network. As the gap between the richest and poorest members of society widens, a growing gulf between prosperous and relegated territories is physically manifesting itself; even in Europe.
