RELOCAL Online Policy Webinar 2

Two urban RELOCAL cases with governance innovation in the spotlight: Stockholm Commission and Lodz Participatory Budgeting

Date: 26th March 2021

Time: 11:30-13:00 (CET)


This is the second RELOCAL Policy Webinar focussing on a key topic addressed in the RELOCAL project, i.e. stakeholder and citizen participation in shaping and implementing local development policies. Two out of 33 RELOCAL case studies representing participatory governance innovations will be presented by RELOCAL  researchers to shed light on the question of how they improve the place-basedness of local development policies, as well as what limits they have to their effectiveness, i.e. what are important aspects to consider when assessing their transferability to other places and regions in Europe. The cases and the wider theme will be commented upon by two experts from the side of policy and practice.
