Karita Research arranges, in cooperation with the Valdoc group, Summer Schools about practices in today's societal decision making, their befits and weaknesses, and how they can be improved. We gather policy advisors, decision-makers, journalists, experts, scientists and students (upper division undergraduate and graduate).
A Valdoc summer school is a unique interdisciplinary gathering towards the creation of knowledge and procedures for transparent decision-making. We aim for an annual or by-annual meeting forum for people with an active interest in transparency and public participation, at which state-of-the-art lectures, seminars and discussions are presented in an interesting and relaxing environment.
The next summer school is funded by the European Commission´s Science and Society research programme. It takes place on June 10-15, 2007. You can return to this web site continually to get updated information on the programme, invited speakers, case studies etc. The preliminary programme can be downloaded here:
