International Conference

International Annual Conference 2022

It is our great pleasure to invite abstract submissions for the joint CitEdEV/CiCea conference Citizenship Education in Divided Times: Building connections through values that will be held at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th of May 2022.

The conference is organised by the Jean Monnet Network Citizenship Education in the Context Of European Values: Educational Aspects (CitEdEV), an EU co-funded platform for knowledge sharing and cooperation of experts in the field of citizenship and values education and Children’s Identity & Citizenship European Association (CiCea), one of the leading organizations promoting the teaching and research of Citizenship Education in Europe and the rest of the world.

The principal conference theme will explore the issue of citizenship education in divided times as seen through the building of connections through values. Identifying positive mechanisms fostering cohesion has been perceived as a priority in contexts of political polarization and social inequality. An involved citizenry is a step towards building sustainable communities and recognising the importance of values helps deepen these connections. Citizenship education contributes to this by providing practical opportunities to explore identities and conflict.

  • A full paper presentation (15 minutes with time for questions and discussion)
