The February 2002 Council of Europe seminar on "Civic Education Policy and Standards Setting in the Russian Federation" is the second seminar devoted to these issues.

The second seminar continues the work of devising strategies for civic education in the Russian Federation. The objectives were: (1) to present civic education work in Lithuania, the Netherlands, and Great Britain with a view to analyzing and comparing different systems of civic education; (2) to become familiar with the work of the Council of Europe; (3) to facilitate dialogue among the different actors in various structures, trends, and schools involved in the development of a civic education policy in the Russian Federation; (4) to make suggestions and proposals to the Council of Europe on concepts of civic education; and (5) to outline an implementation strategy for civic education.
