Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance
The Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (CCIG) is a University designated Centre of Research Excellence
The ENACT (Enacting European Citizenship) project highlights ways in which the scope, content and perception of European citizenship is shaped by the complex ways in which citizenship is enacted, within, across and beyond member states. A number of members of CCIG (including Engin Isin, Michael Saward, Rutvica Andrijasevic, Jef Huysmans, Claudia Aradau and Vicki Squire) led a special briefing for EU officials and researchers – "Reassesssing European Citizenship: Citizens' rights and Citizens' acts" – in Brussels in April 2010. The keynote speaker was Viviane Hoffman, Deputy Head of Cabinet for the Vice-President and Commissioner for Justice, Human Rights and Citizenship. ENACT is a European Commission funded (Framework Programme 7) project bringing together researchers from across the EU and Turkey, coordinated by Engin Isin.
