How it works

Get acquainted

The forthcoming session will feature two fantastic speakers who will provide a brief insight into their current research, followed by a Q&A session.

Get talking

You will then be invited to join the breakout rooms. The theme of the breakout rooms for this session will be research/PhD-related issues and the Joint Sessions 2023.

Get support

You will have the chance to talk through an issue you are currently facing and get feedback and support from fellow attendees. Those working on proposals for the Joint Sessions 2023 can brainstorm together.

If you are thinking of proposing a Paper or Panel for the General Conference 2023, you will also have the opportunity to receive guidance from Nora Siklodi, Steering Committee Chair for the Standing Group on Citizenship.

About the Standing Group

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

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