Zuzana Novakova NEWI have a background in development and democracy, public policy, international relations – and I oscillate between academia and the think tank world. I am based in Netherlands and Ukraine at the moment, but have lived in Belgium, Brazil, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain before that. My main interests are societies in transition and the multitude of social processes that mark progress (and regress) of mankind.

Why I joined FutureLab Europe? Because our generation needs to play a more active role in fostering a new social contract within European societies. We are literally Europe’s future and should contribute to shaping it – also through our civic activism.

Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? Active citizenship is important because only a healthy civil society can safely embed the states and markets that seem in constant crises.
