PIDOP (Processes Influencing Democratic Ownership and Participation) is a multinational research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme. The project has examined the processes which influence young people's civic and political participation in eight European states -- Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey and the UK.
The final PIDOP conference took place at the University of Surrey, UK, on April 16th-17th, 2012. It was attended by people from 30 different countries. At the conference, plenary addresses were presented by four international experts on youth participation: Martyn Barrett, Judith Torney-Purta, Reinhild Otte and Bert Klandermans.
