Establishing a Knowledge Hub on Democracy
39 professors from Circle U. member universities have been appointed in the framework of the Academic Chair Programme. Nine of them in the Knowledge Hub on Democracy. Who are they, and what are their main tasks?
Circle U. Knowledge Hubs are a space for both students and staff to co-create knowledge and solutions across disciplines and with external stakeholders, and to engage in policy development. The Democracy Hub will examine the alarming trends in parts of Europe and elsewhere, where democratic values are undermined and discarded, and develop strategies to strengthen democracy and civic engagement.
The role of the chairs
- Link education and research within and across disciplines, focusing here on issues related to democracy.
- Engage students to take an active role in knowledge creation and socially-engaged research on a theme which already captures their interest.
- Represent and champion Circle U. within the alliance, nationally and internationally, as well as with external stakeholders.
- Stimulate new models of academic collaboration and partnership in their domain of expertise, and share these across Circle U.
