Letter from the Chair

Dear DARE Network members, friends and colleagues,

With the year drawing to an end let me summarise a few of the highlights of 2009:
  • In April a DARE delegation testified before the Education and Culture Commission of the
    European Parliament about the state of education for democratic citizenship (EDC) and human rights education (HRE) in Europe. MEPs were very receptive and we expect that in the long term a closer collaboration with the European Parliament may make it possible for DARE to make regular policy recommendations to the European Union.
  • In April the first DARE Spring Academy was also held. Twenty nine young educators from nine countries met in Sonnenberg in the German Harz Mountains to broaden their knowledge and human rights and methodology, and to develop skills in human rights education with young people. The DARE Spring Academy was a resounding success and will be repeated in 2010.
  • In May our network organised the workshop "Pathways interconnecting history education and democratic citizenship/human rights education" in Berlin. The workshop reflected on twenty years of "regime changes" in Central and Eastern Europe and resulted in a set of very useful learning tools and resources. The workshop coincided with DARE's General Assembly during which a new DARE Board was elected for a two-year term.
  • In October twenty DARE members participated in the professional development workshop "Fundraising Strategies for European Initiatives in the Field of Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education" in Copenhagen.
  • From 1 September-10 December, DARE members participated in the second SYNCHRONISED ACTION DAYS, which showcased the many different activities in the field of EDC and HRE in Europe.
  • DARE was selected as best Practise for Active Citizenship at European Commission's 10 Years Grundtvig Conference (Brussels, 26-28 January 2010).
  • Finally, you are reading the 25th issue of e-DARE, DARE's periodic e-newsletter. Since the first issue appeared in October 2003, e-DARE has evolved into one of main information sources about EDC and HRE in Europe.

After such a busy and successfull year, let me wish you a restful holiday season! I hope to see many of you at upcoming DARE events in the next few months, which include the DARE focus meeting on children's rights education for adults (Brussels, 28-29 January) and the conference "Human Rights Education & Tackling Poverty: towards a healthier, equal, safer and a more inclusive European community" (Glasgow, 4-5 March 2010).

Wishing you wonderful holidays and a successful New Year!

The Model European Parliament Baltic Sea Region (MEP BSR)

100 High School students from 9 countries round the Baltic Sea and from guest countries recently met in Copenhagen for a 6-day seminar to discuss topics about foreign policy, integration, climate, media, education and mobility in a youth parliament, which is set up twice a year in Northern European cities. The project is a core activity in IUC Europe’s democracy projects - a leadership program focusing on educating young people to understand the role of democracy and develop political awareness and understanding of cultural diversity without the interference of teachers/directors. The workshops as well as the General Assembly are run by experienced older students.

Pedagogically the program focuses on individual ICT training and preparation, project work, resolutions written in English, debating, intercultural and rhetoric skills as well as the experience of an advanced and realistic role play as a learning method.

Please find further information at www.mep.se and take a look at the video produced during the recent conference in Copenhagen, which reflects the major elements of the project: Teambuilding, Committee work, Cultural Visits and the General Assembly (youth parliament). The program is sponsored by the Nordic Council of Ministers and linked to the Baltic Development Forum.

Education in Diversity

Living in a multi ethnic and diverse society provides a great opportunity for mutual understanding but as Europe become more religiously diverse conflicts in intercultural relations also appear. Partners Bulgaria team actively particpates in educational initiatives which promote tolerance and embrase diversity. As a part of consortium led by CEJI (A Jewish Contribution to an Inclusive Europe) and supported by the European Commission Life Long Learning Program, Partners Bulgaria has been engaged in the development of a new training programme for adult educators to address issues of religious diversity and anti-discrimination. This project gives adult educators possibility to work with particpants who have different religious afficliation and to focus on transformation of religious differences from an obstacle to an opportunity. The program does not provide an interfaith dialogue but rather promotes anti-predjudice diversity education and development of intercultural skills.

Being an expert in social action, conflict resolution and change management models Partners Bulgaria contributed to the design of the training module with interactive and solution focused activities, buiding on “recepies for happy ending” drown from successfuly resolved multicultural conflicts all over Europe.

The Religious Diversity and Anti-discrimination handbook developed by the consortium partners contains variety of useful cultural information. Adult educators who particpate in the training modules enjoy the variety of pedagogical tools for use in their own local educational and community contexts. The specific objectives of the training are to:

  • Raise participants consciousness of the uniqueness of each individual’s religious identity.
  • Facilitate dialogue and sharing of experiences in the area of religion and culture.
  • Increase participants understanding of the concepts and issues related to religious diversity.
  • Enable participants to recognize contemporary manifestations of stereotyping, prejudice and discrimination related to religion, with specific training activities on anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
  • Develop an appreciation for the complexity and richness of religious diversity.
  • Develop individual skills and institutional strategies for creating inclusive intercultural environments.

Partners Bulgaria trainers have conducted the training program for people of different faiths, beliefs and sense of religious of non-religious belonging. Participants are adult educators working in a variety of formal and non-formal learning environments where issues related to diversity of religions and beliefs are a concern. A complete pedagogical Handbook will be provided to support the learning process of individuals and groups.

This program was awarded the Gold Prize for Quality in Adult Education from the European Commission in 2008. For more information see http://www.ceji.org/

Deliberating in a Democracy

The Friendship Ambassadors Association based in Târgovişte, Romania has been carrying out a three-year project named Deliberating in a Democracy since September 2007 (see http://www.deliberating.org/index.php/About-Us/Romania.html ). The project is funded by the US Department for Education and consists in partnerships between US and European high schools. Romania’s partner is Montgomery County, Maryland. 13 teachers from 9 high schools in Dâmboviţa county participate in the project this year. They run deliberations on various issues (Recycling, Freedom of expression, Global climate change, Domestic Violence, Voting, Cyberbullying etc.) and assist their about 300 students to communicate with their American peers via the discussion board. Besides these compulsory components, our site perform other activities targeting both students and non-DID teachers (teachers who do not participate in the project on a regular basis).

Our teachers train and/or coach other teachers on the structured academic controversy (SAC) or deliberation, the method promoted by the project. They use opportunities such as the formal meetings of various subject matters teachers held every semester, thematic conferences or informal professional events carried out at school level. Sometimes the DID teachers invite their colleagues to observe their deliberations. We also present the video tapes made in the first two years of the project in order to depict various approaches and their strong and weak points. The major goal of this endeavour is to help teachers promote education for democracy and interactive/ student-centered methods irrespective of their subject matter. At the same time, we are trying to encourage them to work in a team at school level and beyond. By asking the DID teachers to pay forward their specific experience, we want to show how the sense of ownership (of one’s own development etc.) can pursue and increase the quality of professional performance and vice versa. After one or two years of running deliberation, the DID teachers started to initiate other projects or develop other activities based on the DID Project components. It seems natural to invite the form teachers of your school to observe the deliberations you run every month or to present your students’ achievements to people (students and teachers) of other schools.

At the same time, we wanted and managed to spur the DID students to take what the project gave them outside our lessons. We often undertook follow-up activities or projects. Some students organized campaigns against violence respectively cyberbullying. The former was run in partnership by students from Găeşti and Târgovişte. The latter was a chain of presentations conveyed in several DID and non-DID schools. This school year we have carried out two student conferences. The first was rooted in UNESCO procedure of choosing world heritage sites (the participating students created posters depicting valuable monuments or cultural/natural sites from Romania). Both posters and the overall report on the activity are posted on the discussion board in order to challenge the other project partners (Americans and Europeans) to react and get in touch with the authors (or, maybe, to get more information about the proposed sites). The most recent conference took place on the 10-th of December and was dedicated to human rights and how they are illustrated by the domestic media, mainly newspapers. Students found articles dealing with economic, cultural, political, and social issues. By working in groups, they identified the human rights analysed or just mentioned in those articles and stated by the Universal Declaration and our Constitution. Then they decided if those rights had been respected or infringed and roughly weighed the general status of that category of problems/issues.

Although these activities cannot reach deep levels of thinking and analysis (they cannot last long due to the school time table or limited available classrooms), they do give the students a chance to link their school education with their daily life and civic challenges. The mere fact that the participants are not willing to leave or they even concretely help us with administrative work just to be closer and have the opportunity to talk to us or their peers about these real issues is a strong indicator of success. Deliberating in a Democracy is a valuable and inspiring way to build on an efficient education for democracy profile of the participating schools.

60 Years European Convention for Human Rights: Campaign THAT'S RIGHT! ECHR 1950 - 2010 started on December 10th

Human Rights resounding throughout the land! Or - to stick to the truth - the negation of Human Rights.

The European Training and Research Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (ETC Graz) developed a year-long campaign in commemoration of 60 years ECHR.

The campaign GANZ RECHT! (roughly translated: that's right!) is based on posters and postcards confronting hate speech with relevant articles of the ECHR. With this material we want to evoke discussions and show that each colloquial statement (of the type that can be heard in public buses, from right-wing politicians etc.) is affecting or even violating the rights of people - the ECHR has constitutional status in austria. Additionally, there will be action days, round tables and debate training workshops in provincial towns and a website dedicated to the campaign.

The campaign THAT'S RIGHT! ECHR 1950 - 2010 that will be continued throughout 2010 started at the traditional Christmas fair in Graz on Human Rights Day 2009: ETC collaborators and students of the Afro-Asian Institute offered passers-by and visitors of the Christmas market postcards and 'human rights gingerbread' thus starting discussions on human rights topics.

The campaign is supported by Zentrum polis (Politik lernen in der Schule/Centre for Citizenship Education and Human Rights Education) and by the Federal Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture. In 2010, a comprehensive booklet supporting strategies against hate speech and giving didactic suggestions for school teachers will be published.

NECE conference in Vilnius sees risk to loose citizenship in Europe

The NECE Networking European Citizenship Education Conference Education in Vilnius (3-5 Dec 09) ended with a strong call for sustainable funding for cultural and civic educational projects.

It was surprising that during the final plenary session all working groups rapporteurs indicated that the grouos identified the genuine funding of pilot projects in Culturalk and Citizenship Education as (via EU, foundations, other levels) problem for sustainable the educational work in general, even more when they shall contribute to the goal of social cohesion.
As it is mainly the NGO sector that delivers new methods and teaching approaches in cultural and citizenship education and implements them in trainings and further education to the formal educational sector, we face europe-wide a rising problem in guaranteing sustainable results. The reason is that all this work done is based on pilot funding, which means there is almost no chance for support in the long run. This results in a constant first of all in a threat to run programmes just according to chaning funding priorities and even more in a giant brain drain of experts in civic education. It is not the formal educational system that develops innovation, but more or less depends as a whole on the creativity of non-formal education.
Cultural and civic education as the connecting angle between people and their social and political environment are being reduced to their contribution towards employability and competitiveness. Their determining role for inclusion, participation, recognition and legitimacy in a functioning society is almost not on the agenda, whilst it is high time to recognise their contibution for functioning democratic societies also in terms of guaranteing and maintaining the working structures of non-formal education. In regard to social cohesion in our societies as a result we face a threat to loose citizenship as Phil Wood introduced in his openimng speech.
The DARE network presented in an input on the Workshop " Whats holding society together? How can EDC/HRE contribute to social cohesion?" some basic needs towards the EU:


  • Lifelong learning of social and civic skills: These skills are defined in the 2006 LLL competences and demanded in the EU´s Lifelong Learning strategy. OUT of the 8 Goals from the LLL Strategy in Education and Training only four are being implemented in the formal education system, only 1 is about to reach the benchmarks adopted by the EU until 2011. The central measure developed by the EU to implement the LLL strategy is the European Qualifications frame/NQF. It is developed based on the European key competences but does not refer to the whole field of civic and social skills. “These key competences are all interdependent, and the emphasis in each case is on critical thinking, creativity, initiative, problem solving, risk assessment, decision taking, and constructive management of feelings.”

  • The EU spends a lot of money on measuring skills and competences on increasing active citizenship by initiating European debates and mobility, empowering people of all age to explore their European identity. In this regard studies undertaken from CRELL and other research institutions are extremely important. But what does it help us to know about the percentage of active citizenship when participation is not practised on the level of policymaking. The Elections for the European parliament show us a shrinking democratic legitimacy of the decision makers not only on level of the European Union. Not to mention the democratic legitimacy of the European Commission and the Council of Ministers.

  • Opportunities for using civic skills through social and political participation in praxis: Inclusion and participation should not be limited to the labour market! Europe should be a core field to experience political participation. European policy should not be the key playground for lobbyists, regardless of all steps that are being undertaken to raise participation.

  • and last but not least it needs knowledge and enforcement of social rights though Human Rights Education. At the moment the active citizen is expected to mutually support all EU decisions. She/he is expected to participate in a workforce and in an abstract social sphere, but far less expected and supported to participate in the political sphere.

  • The structure of the Lifelong learning programme is especially in regard to non-formal education a contradiction in itself. The EU on one hand calls for complete learner orientation and empowerment for participation, on the other hand uses the EQF/NQF as political instrument and aims aim to reach measurable results, indicated in advance. Learner orientation and inclusion means also to be open towards learning outcomes and processes!

A lot of DARE member organisations contributed to the conference with thematic inputs, practice examples, as panelists, moderators and rapporteurs. This is to me a good sign for a lively network but even more a sign that the DARE member organisations have developed a huge expertise in the field. NECE 09 was a good opportunity to take stock if EDC/HRE play a role for Social Cohesion. The upcoiming DARE conference on Tackling Poverty and Social Exclusion (March 4-6 Glasgow) is the place to collect and identify the key messages from the working field of EDC/HRE towards the political level!

Humanity in Action Summer Fellowships 2010: Apply now!

Students or recent graduates from Bosnia, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, the Ukraine and the USA are invited to apply for the five-week HUMANITY IN ACTION Summer Programs 2010 on human and minority rights, diversity and democracy.

The HIA Fellowship Summer Programs in Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, and the United States reflect the specific histories and present challenges of each host country. All programs are designed for international groups of 20-30 students. They focus on histories and theories of resistance to legal and institutional abuse of minority populations and the development of international human rights institutions and doctrines after World War II and the Holocaust.

Each summer program is divided into two phases. During the first phase, leaders of human rights organizations, politicians, diplomats, philanthropists, journalists, scholars, artists and authors meet with the participants for intensive seminars, site visits, and focus group activities. The second phase of the program differs per country. Participants get together in smaller research groups and produce a collaborative result, either a written report or an educational tool like a human rights dilemma simulation.

Following the summer programs, HIA Fellows complete an Action Project, engaging human rights or minority issues in their home institutions or communities.

The application process differs slightly depending on the country of your studies or the country of your residency.

EU Fundraising Strategies - DARE Focus Meeting Documentation online !

The DARE focus meeting “Fundraising strategies for European initiatives in the field of Education for De-mocratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education” (Copenhagen, Oct 1-3, 2009) aimed to highlight the EU policy framework in the field of EDC/HRE and to exchange successful fundraising strategies employed by stakeholders in the field. The focus meeting was jointly organized by DARE - Democracy and Human Rights Education in Adult Learning, IUC Europe (http://www.iuc-europe.dk/) and Humanity in Action (http://www.humanityinaction.org/).

Participants from 10 European countries contributed to the focus meeting with reports, best practices and innovative European fundraising approaches. Following presentations on the most important EU policies in the field of education and the ratio of EU grantmaking, workshops introduced the EU Grundtvig and Daphne grant programmes. An introduction to foundation grants, corporate philantrophy and private donations provided guidance for raising the necessary co-funding almost all EU grant programmes require. The participants discussed pros and cons of different funding sources/strategies and came to the conclusion, that a healthy fundraising mix is most promising, especially in times of economic crisis, that are unfortunately not the best for fundraising in general.

The full focus meeting documentation with all reports and presentations is now online at:
