The Third Engagement Report
The Third Engagement Report is a report on civic engagement that focuses on “The Future of Civil Society: Young Engagement in the Digital Age.”
By a decision of the German Bundestag from March 2009, the German Federal Government is encouraged to present a scientific report on the development of civic engagement in each legislative period. These Engagement Reports are written by an independent commission on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ).
Each report puts an emphasis on different dimensions of civic engagement. The Third Report will focus on: “The Future of the Civil Society: Young Engagement in the Digital Age.” The report aims at providing recommendations for courses of action regarding a sustainable engagement policy as well as giving stimulus for political discourse revolving around current developments and innovative approaches to civic engagement.
Prof. Dr. Jeanette Hofmann is chairing the expert commission. Dr. Theresa Züger is the head of the head office that supports the commission, based at the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG), Berlin.
