Workshop: The Impacts of National Identities for European Integration as Focus for Citizenship Education

23.11.2007
The EU´s capacity to act is closely coupled to questions involving its political and social interactions with the growing diversity in the EU. The workshop aimed to provide a picture of the current academic discourse on citizenship, as well as a networking opportunity for professionals in the field.

An expanded EU's capacity to act, as well as its acceptance in the wider international community, is closely coupled to questions involving its political and social interactions with the growing ethnic, cultural, religious and linguistic diversity in the European Union. As a 'European' self-image grows, the continuing importance of questions having to do with minorities, the examination of historical events, and collective remembrance in the nations of Central and Eastern Europe becomes more important than ever before. This was highlighted as recently as April of 2007 by events in Estonia, when violent clashes caused largely by differing interpretations of historical events took place between Estonians and Russians.

In cooperation with the University of Tartu's Center for Ethics, the German Federal Agency for Civic Education and the Goethe Institute Tallinn have organised the NECE workshop "The Impacts of National Identities for European Integration as Focus for Citizenship Education". The workshop aimed on the one hand to provide a picture of the current academic discourse on citizenship, as well as a networking opportunity for professionals in the field. On the other hand, by introducing those professionals to exemplary projects, it seeked to emphasize the education and mediation role of citizenship education in national and European identity training courses.
