Workshop 4 - The rise of populism in Europe: What should we know? How should we react?


In recent years, populist and right-wing parties, as well as ultra-conservative and eurosceptic movements, have experienced a massive surge all across Europe. Viktor Orbans Fidesz in Hungary, the Sverigedemokraterna in Sweden, the Front National in France, the Alternative für Deutschland in Germany. How can citizenship education respond to these developments? What causes of populism can we identify in the first place? The workshop with Nick Startin and Ivan Krastnev, hosted by Caroline Hornstein Tomic set out to discuss these questions.

FOCUS GROUP: Hard-to-reach learners and youth


Who are ´Hard-to-reach learners´ (HTR)? A simple working definition may be: Educationally and/or socially and/or economically disadvantaged people who are often forgotten by the mainstream of citizenship education or left behind in schools or other educational facilities. Some community groups may move in and out of a state of being hard-to-reach as their social circumstances change. The Hard-to-reach Focus Group explored the concept of being hard-to-reach in the context of citizenship education.
