The vision of this network is a scholarly community that actively works on expanding the domain of public debates, emancipating citizens politically and educationally and promoting their greater participation in social life.
The speakers will also talk about the ways of establishing closer ties and cooperation with scholars from the region, and making scholarly work and research more socially relevant, engaging and visible in the media.
