The European "We": From Citizenship Policy to the Role of Education
Olson, Maria
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v31 n1 p77-89 Jan 2012
This article sheds light on the European Union's policy on citizenship; on the collective dimension of this policy, its "we". It is argued that the inclusive, identity-constituting forces prominent in EU policy on European citizenship serve as a basis for the exclusion of people, which is illustrated by the recent expulsion of Romani from France. Based on a reading of Derrida, the twofold aim of this article is to reformulate the concept of a European citizenship "we" and secondly, to outline some implications of this reframing as concerns the role of education in the formation of citizens.
