Kick Off Events of COST Action 17132 APPLY | European network for Argumentation and Public PoLicY analysis

March 07, 2019

The 4-year project — “European network for Argumentation andPublic PoLicY analysis” (APPLY) — will start with a series of kick-off events at the ArgLab in Lisbon.

The goal of the kick-off event is to encapsulate the project’s main objectives, methods and topics via a variety of presentations, meetings and working sessions. These activities will focus on the problems of argumentation in public policy-making, especially in the context of climate change and energy debates.

The first day Opening Conference is followed by two days of focused work within the Action’s three Working Groups.

Argumentation and Public Policy

International Conference

Tuesday, 19 March 2019 I Campus de Campolide

The conference inaugurates the 4-year COST project: “European network for Argumentation andPublic PoLicY analysis” (APPLY). It brings together international experts on argumentation in public policy: 4 invited speakers and around a 100 project members from across Europe, Canada and the USA.

The goal of the conference is to present and discuss leading research investigating the problems of public policy understood as problems of argumentation and deliberation and, as such, as problems of the rationality of discourse in collective knowledge and action. Four internationally leading scholars will present their most recent theorizing on these topics. 

Further details available here.

Attendance is free but registration in necessary. If interested, please register here by Friday, March 15.
