ETHOS is a Horizon2020 project developed to create a new integrative perspective on justice and fairness. ETHOS does so by:
In ETHOS six Research Institutions cooperate: Utrecht University (UU, Utrecht, The Netherlands, coordinator), Europäisches Trainings und Forschungszentrum für Menschenrechte und Demokratie (ETC, Graz, Austria), Kozep-Europai Egyetem (CEU, Budapest, Hungary), Centro de Estudos Sociais (CES, Coimbra, Portugal), Bogaziçi University (BU, Istanbul, Turkey) and the University of Bristol (UoB, Bristol, United Kingdom).
The project set out to identify, investigate, discuss and ameliorate the barriers to the active use of EU citizenship rights (and knowledge of duties). The insights were developed by studying citizenship from different disciplines: law, political science, social sciences, history, philosophy, public administration and economics.
The research has been conducted by eminent researchers from 26 institutions situated in 19 countries in Europe and outside. It was coordinated by Utrecht University, with Frans van Waarden and Sybe de Vries as principal coordinators. See for more information the bEUcitizen website.
