NECE Conference 2015: "'Us' and 'Them': Citizenship Education in an Interdependent World"
22-24 October 2015, Thessaloniki, Greece
The focus of this year's NECE Conference will be to build on the outcomes of its predecessor event in Vienna, which looked in-depth at conflicts in and around Europe. The jumping-off point is the proposition that religious, ethnic and cultural perceptions of self and others are playing an increasingly important role in political crises and upheavals, both within Europe and outside its borders. In this paradigm, conflicts that are social, economic or political in context begin to be perceived as ethnic, religious or 'cultural'. These perceptions in turn lead to a toxic framing of conflicts, actors and repercussions at international, European and national levels. Just as in Vienna, we’re especially looking forward in 2015 to including stakeholders and initiatives in Citizenship Education and civil society from conflict-torn countries in Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean region.
The »Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki«, which can look back on sixty years of history in the city, will act as a partner for the event.
