In today’s knowledge society, education can act as a powerful resource to achieve the European goal of social cohesion. Similarly to the field of medicine in which only those treatments that have been proven to be effective when curing a particular disease are implemented, there is a need to identify those educational and social actions that research has shown can reverse social and educational exclusion. In the last 5 years, INCLUD-ED Project researchers have gathered evidences that demonstrate which are the actions that overcome inequalities. They will be presented in the Final INCLUD-ED Conference.

The symposium will address new forms of citizenship that are experimented with by people living in hybrid situations - i.e. not strictly within the norm - and that modify the outlines of juridical citizenship. Those forms of citizenship imply practical activities connected with existing schemes or milieus: what is at stake is the continuous invention of the democratic principle itself, i.e. the "right to have rights". Such practices assert and express a "right to the city" that is not immediately granted, featuring what the researchers call profane citizenship and also standing as a tool to analyse democratic ownership.

The WORKCARE SYNERGIES project will present research findings trying to answer to questions such as: what happens to people as they move between different employment statuses, do part-time and temporary workers remain in these jobs, do they move on to something better, or do they fall out of employment, and what factors and policies are associated with these transitions.
