OBC Transeuropa takes part in the 3-year research project “Transnational Political Contention in Europe (TraPoCo)", dedicated to the study of trans-European political activism  under the Jean Monnet action of the Erasmus+ programme.

The project brings together scholars from different disciplinary areas and with different research interests – social movements, civil society, environment, migrations, anti-discrimination, labour relations, refugee rights – with the aim of developing a joint research programme, with debates, lectures, training, and dissemination of results. The research streams will focus on the plurality of political activisms in current society. 

The network, led by the  Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa with Professor Donatella Della Porta – chair of Political and Social Sciences, comprises three universities (University of Belgrade, University College Dublin, Boku University-Vienna) as well as OBC Transeuropa and NGO The Good Lobby.
