Abstract

The panel is designed to contribute to the debate on the plurality of approaches towards citizenship education, in an attempt to seek a common language for scholars and practitioners alike. Thus, the panel seeks to provide a forum for articulating relevant dimensions and approaches without claiming a ‘right’ one. The panel discusses, but is not limited to: a) a proposed framework of various aspects of citizenship education approaches, based on grid-group cultural theory. b) dimensions connected to finding the (non-)political in citizenship education. c) theoretical and practical challenges of (mis-) matching definitions of citizenship education as a basis for curriculum development and school practice. d) thoughts on a plural conception of citizenship based on actual understandings in multicultural societies.
