Young Citizens in Europe
Citizenship Foundation Trustee David Kerr, Principal Research Officer at the National Foundation for Educational Research in England and Wales (NFER) has contributed a survey ‘Research on Citizenship Education in Europe'.
In addition, Citizenship Foundation Team Leader Ted Huddleston contributed the chapter ‘Citizenship Education in England' in an overview section that includes Germany, France, Portugal and Slovenia.
The new publication - ‘The Making of Citizens in Europe: New Perspectives on Citizenship Education' - takes as its premise the conviction that, as Europe grows together, only a politically mature European populace of citizens will be able to master common challenges and sustain a democracy, and that citizenship education itself must go through a cumulative process of ‘Europeanization' to live up to these challenges.
‘The Making of Citizens in Europe: New Perspectives on Citizenship Education' is published by Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, edited by Viola B. Georgi.
