Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute (DEDI): The Road to Citizenship Education in Egypt

23.9.2016
In 2015 The Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute (DEDI) conducted a qualitative study regarding Citizenship Education in Egypt, especially the efforts done within the non-formal sector. The final version of this study "The Road to Citizenship Education in Egypt" was published in 2016. It was realized in partnership with the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) and the Egyptian Youth Federation (EYF).

In their qualitative study the researchers provide an overview of the current status of Citizenship Education (CE) in Egypt. The focus is set on the non-formal sector, including the work of Civil Society Organizations and NGOs. What the study is trying to identify is a common understanding of CE in the Egyptian context: What are the various forms of “non-formal” Citizenship Education? Which current subjects of initiatives and programs are there to be found? What kind of different stakeholders work in the area of CE and what are their most striking challenges? And finally: How do well-tried practices and lessons learned to date look like?

To get those insights, semi-structured interviews and focus groups were conducted with different stakeholders, for example members of NGOs or donor agencies and especially with youth, active either as participants or trainers in citizenship education projects. The results of these encounters might help policy makers or organizations working within CE retrace the structures of the work field in Egypt. The special regard to the involvement of young adults into CE aimed to explore their representation and responsibility within the civil society.
