Citizenship Education in Europe

All EU Member States have integrated 'citizenship education' into their primary and secondary school curricula - albeit with different approaches, according to a report published today by the European Commission. Improving knowledge and skills for teaching the subject remains a challenge, however, with only two countries (UK - England and Slovakia) offering training for prospective specialist teachers in initial teacher education programmes. The report indicates a general consensus that citizenship education should aim to develop critical thinking, analytical skills and attitudes to foster active participation in school and society.

Participatory Citizenship in the European Union Institute of Education

The study 'Participatory Citizenship in the European Union' mapped the theory, policy, practices and levels of engagement across Europe into 3 reports: the Contextual Report, the Analytic Reportand the Good Practice Report. Data was collected from the 27 EU member states by experts. This was complemented with the analysis of European and international datasets and the most up to date literature in the field. A 4th report includes the policy recommendations: these are oriented towards the Europe 2020 strategy for ‘smart, sustainable and inclusive growth’ overall and, more specifically, to policies and actions in the context of developing the new Europe for Citizens Programme 2014 – 2020, and in light of the upcoming 2013 European Year of Citizens, and the 2014 European elections.
