Welcome to the Research Center for Civic Engagement


The Idea

The Research Center for Civic Engagement represents a key research area of Prof. Dr. Sebastian Braun. It conducts research, advises, and contributes to the public debate on the volunteering of individuals and organizations. In doing so, it promotes the transfer of knowledge and dialogue between science, politics, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and public organizations.


Civic Engagement

Civic engagement is considered to be an important resource in dealing with the challenges that social, economical, political and ecological changes bring about at a national and global level.

Central to civic engagement are a variety of voluntary activities undertaken by individuals and organisations. These activities focus on democracy and public welfare.
