Education for Democratic Citizenship Consultation Meeting. General Report.
This collection of educational documents, technical reports, legislative documents, and summaries from a variety of areas of education for democratic citizenship was assembled for the consultation meeting in Strasbourg, France. These documents formed a foundation for the work of the meeting and a future project dealing with civics education in schools and adult education in the European countries represented. The report is structured in three parts. The first part seeks to explain the political context of the new project, emphasizing its place within the overall activities of the Council of Europe. The second part deals with education for democratic citizenship with conceptual clarifications in terms of the most closely related concepts of civics education, civil education, and human rights education. The third part of the report aims to group the proposals concerning the new projects by covering the several aspects of needs, objectives, target groups, expected results, key issues, working methods, and evaluation.
