Doppen, Frans H.
Education, Citizenship and Social Justice, v5 n2 p131-143 Jul 2010
As a result of dramatic demographic changes during the last half century as well as a series of recent events surrounding prominent personas, the Dutch have been engaged in an intense debate about their national identity and how citizenship education can contribute to the integration of Muslim immigrants in particular. This article analyses the history and impact on citizenship education of the recently released "Canon van Nederland," which is now part of the required curriculum in the primary and middle grades.
