This guide was developed from the experimental evaluation and capitalization process of the Art & Territory Call for projects led by the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation with 20 project leaders and in partnership with Nuova Vista between 2014 and 2016. The 20 projects supported provide a concrete answer to the evaluative question: "How can a demanding artistic approach contribute to living together on a territory? "This methodological guide aims to help cultural stakeholders to identify and evaluate their social impact. It is conceived in a logic of self-evaluation: the evaluation process is defined and implemented by the organisation itself.To find additional information and practical tools related to that guide:https://www.fondationcarasso.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/La-Boussole-de-lArt-Citoyen-catalogue-impact-WEB.pdfhttps://www.fondationcarasso.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/notre_aventure_collective_-_livret.pdf
In Ventimiglia, near the border between Italy and France, refugees and other migrants are living rough, without access to the most basic services. Women, men and children are 'pushed' out of the Italian asylum system, which often fails to meet their most basic needs for safety, information and education. Across the border, the French police meet children with abuse, and send them back to Italy in violation of French and EU law. Stranded, hundreds of people are unable to seek even basic support.

This paper looks at two competing views among economists and other observers, of how the French economy can overcome mass unemployment and have a more robust recovery. One view sees the unemployment and economic stagnation of the past decade as overwhelmingly structural. An alternative narrative, mostly from the Left but with some elements adopted by the far Right, sees the most immediate problem as one of inadequate demand in the economy.The authors find that France's unemployment rate, which has averaged 9.1 percent over the last decade, is not the product of "structural" barriers, but rather due to political choices made by the French government and European authorities. With inflation well below target, real borrowing costs at about zero, and a low current interest burden on the debt, it would make much more economic sense for the government -- and the eurozone as well -- to pursue an expansionary fiscal policy that increases employment.

NGO mobilisation is required to ensure the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are implemented at the national level. This study investigates how NGOs mobilise in European countries, with a special focus on France and Germany, in order to encourage action and to identify obstacles and ways forward. It appears that although NGOs are increasingly aware of the SDGs and have started to take dedicated action on them, this mobilisation is still biased towards development organisations and, more generally, towards organisations working on international issues.
