International Conference on New Political Movements in Portugal and Europe
CICPRIS hosted an International Conference on New Political Movements in Portugal and Europe, on the 21st of May, at 9h30, at Agostinho da Silva Auditorium, at ULHT Campus, in Lisbon. Moderated by João de Almeida Santos, dean of FCSEA and Researcher in charge of CICPRIS, the panel counted with Manuel Anselmi, Perugia University, José Manuel Sánchez Duarte, King Juan Carlos University-Madrid, Bernardo Ivo Cruz, True Bridge Consultancy, and José Filipe Pinto, Lusófona University.
Framed as part of the research program about New Political Movements, this conference represented a further step in the process on the public debate about this important and current issue, with specialists form Portugal and abroad. These political movements are an alternative to the traditional political models, currently in crisis, serving as the critical response to the system. Also, they are based on self-organizing and self-mobilizing citizenship movements that have appeared after the development of new Information and communication technology (ICT), and social networks.
