    CG4: Adult education for active democratic citizenship

    Co-Moderator: Dr. Borut Mikulec

    Efforts for active and/or democratic citizenship are one of the “classic” themes in adult education theory and practice. Many adult educators, especially those who associated adult education with social movements, recognised adult education as major force for social change that can make a significant contribution to maintaining democracy and lead to emancipation by adults learning the principles of democratic reason, active citizenship, civic competence and communicative action. In this sense democratic society represent learning society.
    Furthermore, governments around the globe as well as international intergovernmental organisations (IIOs) (e.g. EU, UNESCO, OECD) in their policies strive for “active”, “democratic”, “European” and/or “global” citizenship with which they promote values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law and fight against extremism, violence, racism, discrimination and xenophobia.
    However, many authors and researchers find it difficult to define and conceptualise citizenship education – some seeing it as “citizenships as status” or “citizenships as practice”, others differentiate between citizenship practices that are either socializing or transformative etc. – as citizenship is a dynamic, contextual, contested and multidimensional concept.
    Therefore, as different practices, policies and conceptualisations of active and/or democratic citizenship related to adult education exists around the globe, this comparative group will elaborate their commonalities and differences in comparative perspective.
