Case Study Materials
The final support material on the Case Studies for the workshop preparation will be available here.
The Case Study is conceived as a problem-solving exercise. Therefore, the idea is to develop tools that enable participants to work in small groups with the assistance of Cipast members. Some examples of participants’ tasks
- To reframe the issue, from the large contextualisation given in the support materials to a more specific one
- To describe the procedure to be used and justify the choice
- To establish the role assigned to communication and the media

A short presentation (a 30 minutes Powerpoint presentation, for instance) to introduce the aims and prospect of the Case Study exercise:
- General framing and nature of the demand
- Procedure: the tasks to be performed, the time distribution, etc.
Synthesis of realisation (for real cases):
A brief summary of framing, institutions involved, aims, difficulties, impact… The real case should also be used as an example in the related poster on participative methods
