Event launch of the project “Citizenship in Practice”
The new project of Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity entitled “Citizenship in practice”, implemented under the Active citizens fund program, in partnership with the Hellenic League for Human Rights started in April 2021 and will be completed in March 2023.
The aim of the project is to improve the existing administrative practice related to the acquisition of citizenship. Specifically, it will identify the administrative inefficiencies, suggest proposals for its simplification for the benefit of both the applicants and the administration -which will arise from the monitoring of the implementation of national legislation as well as the experience of other European countries-, enhance the skills of public officials and inform about ensuring the access to the right of citizenship.
Thus, the project addresses -for the first time in Greece- the need to assess the administrative procedure of granting citizenship with the ultimate goal of contributing to equal access and enjoyment of it.
As part of the launch of the project, Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity and the Hellenic League for Human Rights invite you to the informative event that will take place on May 26, 2021, from 16.00 to 17.30. The wider framework and the key issues concerning the granting of Greek citizenship today and their connection with the activities and the expected results of the project “Citizenship in practice” will be presented.
The speakers of the event will be: Ismini Karydopoulou (Project Coordinator), Georgia Spyropoulou (Partner Coordinator), Andreas Takis (Vice President of the Hellenic League for Human Rights), Sotiria Chira (Legal Documentation Officer). Christiana Kyrkou will present the Active citizens fund program (Program Officer Active citizens fund).
