The PaCE event, conference, and workshop on policy strategy has been organized by the City of Reykjavík, in collaboration with the University of Iceland and the LIbrary Gerðubergi on the 26th and 27th of October 2021.
The event was built on the main findings of the PaCE Local Democracy Lab in Iceland and aimed to create and apply evidence-based methods on policy innovation based on academic research, knowledge, and experience to better address the needs of different groups in society.
We were honored to have the Ambassador of the European Union in Iceland, H.E. Lucie Samcová-Hall Allen present at the PaCE event.
The workshop unified a multidisciplinary group of stakeholders such as politicians, academics, policy and decision-makers, representatives of minority groups, and other relevant stakeholders that have discussed the main outcomes of the PaCE Local Democracy Lab organized in Iceland on the 30th of January 2021. The participants had the opportunity to discuss the relevance and value of the outcomes for policy and practice to ensure a more inclusive approach to the diversity of the Icelandic community in times of crisis.
The proposed thematic areas were:
- Communication strategies, accessibility, and transparency of information.
- Resilience mechanisms and inclusiveness in liberal democracy.
- Policy innovation – development and contribution to policy design – processes, tools, and practices.
- Political leadership and the role in the transformation of society.
