About the Standing Group

Established in 2013, the Standing Group on Citizenship investigates citizenship and its personal, cultural, social, economic and political implications, through interdisciplinary research from multiple theoretical perspectives. It seeks to address how citizenship continues to formulate relations between polities and individuals through rights, duties, participation and identities.

In the context of increased diversity, reduced participation and growing political distrust, the Standing Group also explores how schools prepare citizens for their civic life in citizenship education.
