Montee en Puissance d'une Europe des Citoyennetes Composees (The Coming into Force of a Europe of Compound Citizenships).
This report examines the changes occurring in French speaking Switzerland as represented by the nearly 30 Children's Parliaments that have emerged in the past few months. Specialists agree that European societies are experiencing a period of decomposition/recomposition, a political and cultural process that will lead to a social Renaissance of unknown proportions. Previously, citizenship was a simple process. The new citizenship will change from the state domains to the infra-state and supra-state levels, and will feature new compound citizenships that are more socially appropriate for mobile young people. Citizenships will be defined by space and no longer by territories. Basic questions emerge: (1) Will education for citizenship contribute to the development of compound citizenships in Europe?; and (2) What education is needed for compound citizenships? (EH)
