Media Engagement by ECSA-C members

During the Jean Monnet Project ECSA-Cn, the ECSA-C members were invited to participate in various media outreach initiatives. The key objective with the media alerts and commentary was to address issues of public concern and instigate a broader debate. The project proactively connected scholars of the ECSA-C community with media outlet and helped them making their expertise available to different audiences.
