This is the final volume of this important series on current developments and research in Europe, published in association with CiCe - the European Union Thematic Network Programme - 'Children's Identity and Citizenship in Europe'. Together they offer reflection, analysis and contextualisation of recent findings, locate these in pedagogic practice, and indicate their implications for education.In this concluding volume, the series editor pulls together and analyzes current perspectives on intercultural education and the efforts to include European citizenship education in the education of teachers. The series highlights the development of identity in the countries of Europe, which has new relevance in the developing political, demographic and social character, and will be of interest to sociologists as well as educators across Europe.
An important contribution to theorising and operationalising what it means to be a citizen in Europe at the start of the twenty-first century and the implications for education and for young people.
