Report and conclusion of the expert council “Value and price of civic resposibility”
Expert’s meeting organised by the Department of the Humanities and Social Sciences of the Latvian Academy of Sciences seeks answers to three questions:
1) What is civil responsibility, how it expresses itself (personal responsibility about his or her behaviour: day-to-day, at work, in special cases – elections, crisis)? Methods and mechanisms of civil responsibility (public voting, media, protest actions).
2) The value of the civil responsibility (impact of low civil responsibility on the development of the state and society (poor state governance, incapacity to formulate and to protect vital interests of the state, incapacity to fight corruption and similar)).
3) The price of the civil responsibility (nothing appears from nothing, cultivation of the civil responsibility costs).
