Short Outline:

Institutions and organizations are places of participation, they are learning places and places for the deliberation and development of the common good. It is in this latter sense that we look at institutions and organizations that involve people at various stage of the life course. We analyze and critically discuss which concepts of participation are meaningful in these contexts, how and how successfully they are implemented, and which obstacles to establishing and living a participative and democratic community are encountered.
