BIICL is one of 18 partner organisations participating in a Horizon 2020 EU-funded project, 'Reconciling Europe with its Citizens through Democracy and the Rule of Law' (RECONNECT). This four-year multidisciplinary project focuses on strengthening the EU's legitimacy throughout Europe and seeks to assist the EU in becoming more attuned to the expectations of its citizens.
BIICL has a multifaceted role in RECONNECT. Along with the University of Leuven, we are co-leading the Communication, Dissemination and Exploitation strategy, including the project blog which published 60 posts in the first two years. At the substantive level, BIICL researchers have contributed to working papers, which are part of project deliverables.
