ProDem Progress Meeting

On November 19, we had the wonderful opportunity to host the first annual progress meeting of ProDem. We welcomed Dan Mercea and Felipe Gonzales Santos from London, Lorenzo Mosca, and Fred Paxton from Milan, Christina Neumayer and Matthias Hoffmann from Kopenhagen, Dana Trif, Diana Margarit and Toma Burean from Cluj, and, as guests, Daria Glukhova and Andrea Pirro from Florence. The international project sheds light on the triple interaction between citizens, social movements, and movement parties. These topics have undoubtably only gained significance over the past few years, with social movements all over Europe entering the political arena in one way or another.

After kicking off the meeting in jolly mood the evening before with a dinner, discovering specialities such as Grüne Soße and Mispelchen, the basis was laid for a very constructive collaboration the next day. Special thanks go to the PRIF staff (Peace Research Institute Frankfurt), who stepped in in the last moment to offer a venue in these challenging times. The ProDem team appreciated very much to meet in person, many seeing each other for the first time since the project had been initiated. Now, after this productive meeting, we are all looking forward to two more exiting years of fruitful cooperation and mutual synergy!

Our workshop team consisted of Anna Anlauft, László Boroffka, Lex Metzeld, Max Propadalo, Nils Sartorius and Claudius Wagemann.
