LAW SHIFTERS

A project by Stine Marie Jacobsen.

Law Shifters engages young citizens in law and democracy by giving them the chance to act as both judges and lawmakers. What would your verdict be to real court cases, and how would you rewrite the laws in your country so that they would be more just?

The Law Shifters project makes young people discuss their political opinions, ethical views and sense of justice as they re-judge real court cases and write new law proposals that reflect the reality that they are part of today.

With the current discussions on direct democracy, legal (un)realisable proposals from citizens could play an important role on the political stage. Law Shifters strengthens young people’s democratic education in a serious yet humorous and creative way and deals with existing regulations and legislations in Europe.
