Who we are


CIJ is a newly founded non-profit organisation in its launching phase. We are grateful for the financial support of the Hertie Foundation’s Center for Advanced Practionners (Hertie Innovationskolleg - HIK).



The Center for Advanced Practioners is a project of the Hertie Foundation that actively participates in shaping the co-existence of all Europeans by initiatives of great social impact and exemplary nature. It promotes ideas of free thinkers as well as future- and practice-oriented projects of different formats within these three topics: The Future of Democracy, The Future of Education, and The Future of Social Cohesion. Dr. Emilia Roig is Fellow of the Center for Advanced Practioners for the year 2017/2018.
