23rd Annual CiCea International Conference 2022
and 1st Joint Conference with CitEdEV
Citizenship Education in Divided Times: Building Connections Through Values
You are invited to submit 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.
We welcome papers examining connecting to this theme, including but not limited to:
- How and in what ways citizenship education can encourage young people to relate to, engage with, and participate in their communities in divided times.
How educators and stakeholders perceive and employ citizenship education to build connections through values, youth identities, and forms of active citizenship.
- We are also very keen to receive papers focusing on all other aspects of citizenship education and values from around the world exploring curriculum design, pedagogy, psychology, youth identities, law, human rights, history education, and policy-making.
The conference is supported by the journal Citizenship Teaching & Learning. Conference papers of good quality will be referred to the journal for consideration for publication. Our intention is to host an international conference with insights and perspectives from around the world. We welcome individuals and groups (academic associations, professional bodies, charities, NGOs etc.) that represent a wide range of commitment to youth activism, engagement and education.
