EADI Webinar No. 18: Linking social rights to active citizenship for the most vulnerable: the role of rights and accountability in the ‘making’ and ‘shaping’ of social protection? 28 February 1:00pm CET

In this webinar, Rachel Sabates-Wheeler will discuss a conceptual framework she has developed through which citizens can be engaged and stimulated to make rights-based claims for social protection entitlements.

Her work highlights the ways in which the design and delivery of social protection can open up spaces for different forms of citizenship engagement and expression. This in turn establishes institutional spaces where citizens can engage with the state, and each other and demonstrates the unique potential for social protection to build the economic, social and political capabilities of citizens. For further reading, please see Rachel Sabates-Wheeler's paper here
