Zentrum polis is member of the board of the Interessengemeinschaft Politische Bildung (IGPB).
The first annual conference offers a diverse programme on the field of human rights education. Patricia Hladschik, of Zentrum polis, deals with the field of tension and the interaction of democracy and human rights with regard to education. She also presents the Council of Europe's campaign "Free to speak, safe to learn - democratic schools for all", which sees the school as an important player in democracy-building.
In April 2017, the Council of Europe launched the European Policy Advisers Network (EPAN). The basis for the work of this network is the Council of Europe’s Reference Framework of Competencies for Democratic Culture (RFCDC). The Austrian experts to the EPAN network, Sigrid Steininger and Patricia Hladschik, invite to a roundtable presentation and discussion of this framework.
