1. Giffey, Franziska (geb. Süllke). The policy of the European Commission for the participation of civil society.

Degree: 2010, Freie Universität Berlin

The opportunities and constraints of the European Commission’s policy for the participation of civil society are the subject matter of the present work. The understanding of the European Commission and different political scientists concerning “European civil society” and its participation in the context of democratic legitimation and a transnational European public sphere are described. In terms of that the analysis concentrates on the change and development of political strategies and instruments of the European Commission for the participation of civil society in the framework of the European integration history. The relevance of this dissertation is based on the assumption that the inclusion of civil society could be a feasable answer to the stated democratic deficit of the European Union and could make a contribution to the enhancement of its democratic legitimation. By means of different books and articles of political science literature, a discussion of different attitudes in political sciences about democratic theories is carried out. The research design consists of a typology of different participatory instruments of the European Commission and the development of an own analytical framework with dimensions of appropriateness to examine participatory instruments which are access, added value and inclusion. On the basis of this analytical framework the European participatory instruments are examined in terms of their appropriateness in a case study in the socio- economic hard case area of the Berlin borough of Neukölln in the German capital. The result of this analysis is that the participatory instruments employed by the European Commission are only limited appropriate to reach a broader and not only the elitist part of civil society and therefore to reduce the democratic deficit of the European Union. Participation largely depends upon the will and the individual abilities and capacities of citizens and the organisations of civil society. Solution statements and recommendations for policy design are deduced from the research results to enhance the support of these components and to develop alternative, understandable and concrete forms of participation of civil society for a citizen-friendly and democratically legitimated European integration policy in the future.
