ENGAGE - learning democracy with children aged 8 - 12

How do children aged 8 -12 years learn democracy in Europe? The project ENGAGE aims at identifying success conditions for learning democracy and citizenship education with children and tries to compare the different settings in all countries.
The publication "ENGAGE - learning democracy with children aged 8 - 12 (vol. I)" comprises six national analyses (AT, FR, DE, PL, ESP, UK), identifies common key findings and gives concrete recommendations to advance the situation.
Given the fact that the relevant policies in the 6 participating countries largely differ in their scope, back- up and aims, this study is one of the first European studies that gives a rather qualitative view on the topic as it provides some multi-perspective views backed with interviews from the sphere of non-formal and formal educational practice, youth work and childrens right work.

Volume II of the book will be issued in the near future and give a concrete view on the methods and existing practises.

All parts of the study and the full report can be downloaded from the website
The report is published under the DARE BLUE LINES publication series and is free for use.

The project ENGAGE has been funded with support from the EU-ERASMUS+ programme |2014-1-FR01-KA200-008747|. This publication reflects the views of the authors only and the European Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.
