Ziele und Aufgaben

Ziele und Aufgaben der Organisation: EUROCLIO, the European Association of History Educators promotes a responsible and innovative teaching of history, based on multi-perspectivity, critical thinking, mutual respect, and the inclusion of controversial issues. It promotes a sound use of history education towards the building and deepening of democratic societies, connecting professionals across boundaries of countries, ethnicities and religions. EUROCLIO believes that the past does not stop at national borders and that history education has a significant impact on how people look at the world around them. The Association propagates an approach to history education that deconstructs historical myths and negative stereotypes. While combating the instrumentalisation of history education for petty political objectives, EUROCLIO’s work fosters mutual understanding among Europe’s citizens, and defends the acknowledgement of societies’ cultural and linguistic diversity. EUROCLIO promotes teaching an attractive, engaging and relevant history, heritage and citizenship education, supporting the 21st Century knowledge-based and global society. It seeks to enhance the quality of history and citizenship education through capacity building for educators and producing innovative teaching tools.

In 2011, EUROCLIO represents 79 independent and volunteer History heritage and citizenship Educators’ Associations and related Institutes from 43 mostly European countries. It reaches out to a network of at least 25.000 history, heritage and citizenship educators. In their daily work they contact up to 5.000.000 students and pupils per year. The organisation was established in 1993 on request of the Council of Europe. Since then, EUROCLIO has worked in active partnership with the Council of Europe and obtained participatory status as international non-governmental organisation within the conference of iNGO’s. EUROCLIO works together with UNESCO, the UN Alliance of Civilizations and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). EUROCLIO receives core funding from the European Commission and is an active member of the European Union Stakeholders Platforms for Life Long Learning, for Citizenship and for Multilingualism.

Since the early 1990s EUROCLIO has worked in many European countries and beyond, but its main focus has been on European countries in political transformation and in particular those with inter-ethnic and inter-religious tensions such as Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Russia and Ukraine. It also works in regions which have experienced recent violent conflicts such as Former Yugoslavia, Cyprus or Georgia. EUROCLIO work brings together historians and history educators to share experiences, to implement innovative learning about the past, discussing also sensitive and controversial issues and therefore creating new and inclusive historical narratives.

EUROCLIO propagates a shift in contents, methods as well as pedagogy of school history aiming to implement a new paradigm of history and citizenship education. This means an enhanced balance between geographical dimensions and political, cultural, economic and social perspectives, as well as a shift towards a more European but also global perspective. This also means more emphasis on the history of everyday life and on concepts such as migration, gender, mutual inclusiveness, human rights, diversity and environment. EUROCLIO advocates an educational approach that neither white-washes or sanitizes problematic national and global narratives of the past nor presents a non-controversial, rosy historical picture, but a method that brings a multidimensional and complex past into being.
EUROCLIO promotes a history education based on key and transversal competencies, stimulating teachers to foster students’ skills to critically think, to analyse, to question, to interpret, to judge, and to decide.

Wichtigste EU-Initiativen, die im Vorjahr durch Tätigkeiten im Rahmen des Transparenzregisters abgedeckt wurden :

EUROCLIO is a central European stakeholder in the field of Education&Training as well as in the field of History, Heritage and Citizenship. Its main areas of lobby are the Access to Lifelong learning for educators, the European dimension of History, Heritage and Citizenship (education), and the Recognition of the role and Sustainability of Non-Profit Organisations.

EUROCLIO provides solutions to some of Europe's most pressing problems including a lack of sense of belonging of Europe’s (younger) population. We communicate the Association’s contribution to the European project and spread this message through meetings with a wide variety of agents. A measurable result can only be achieved when the work of the Association is mainstreamed into curricula, textbooks, national teacher training programmes, school teaching and examination programmes. Therefore Europe-wide political and governmental endorsement is indispensible. Henceforth, the Associations continue its awareness-raising activities among national and European politicians and educational authorities. At the same time it will stimulate and support its Members organisations with all possible means for their lobby work on a local level.

EUROCLIO has developed over the last two decades a wide variety of Partnerships. It has special relationships with several Intergovernmental Organisations, Organisations and Institutes related to history and history and citizenship education and special interest networks. The Association has been recognized by several intergovernmental organisations as an important actor in the field of history, heritage and citizenship education.
EUROCLIO was established on a request of the Council of Europe in 1991. Since then, EUROCLIO obtained participatory status as international non-governmental organisations with the Council of Europe conference of iNGO’s and has worked in active partnership with the Council of Europe in a wide variety of pan-European, regional and national projects regarding history and citizenship education. In 2001 EUROCLIO participated in the many meetings that preceded the drafting of this important recommendation about the basic principles of responsible history education. And the Recommendation 1880 about History teaching in conflict and post-conflict areas from 2009 calls again to encourage teachers to join Associations of history teachers and attend events such as those run by EUROCLIO in order to help develop confidence, experience and expertise.
Since 2006 EUROCLIO has received support from the European Commission an operating grant within the Jean Monet Lifelong Learning Programme enabling the Association to carry out its basic work. The Association is a member of Commission-related networks such as EUCIS-LLL, the European Civil Society Platform for Life Long Learning, the Citizenship Structured Dialogue Group and the Civil Society Platform for Multilingualism.
UNESCO counts EUROCLIO among their partnerships with civil society organizations that have experience in creating quality learning materials.
Since 2009 EUROCLIO has begun to work alongside the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations. EUROCLIO and the Alliance have agreed to cooperate on history and citizenship education in the Balkans and study options for cooperative work in the Mediterranean Region.
EUROCLIO is a member of the Anna Lindh Network. The Anna Lindh Foundation for Dialogue between Cultures is bringing people together from across the Mediterranean to improve mutual respect between cultures in the Euro-med region.
EUROCLIO is since 2010 member of the European Network of Third Sector Leaders(EUCLID) connecting leaders to facilitate peer-learning, pan-European partnerships, influence processes, and make the sector as a whole stronger and more innovative. EUROCLIO is also a member of the European Civic Forum; a young network with a strong European ambition; to encourage a civic and popular ownership of Europe by its citizens.
