Workshop 3: Conflicting identities? The role of identities in conflicts and in citizenship education

Identities can play a catalytic role in different conflicts. Social conflicts as well as violent clashes are not conceivable without opposing identities. Conflicts can be played out within a society or in the international context. In this workshop we are going to discuss how citizenship education needs to be designed in diversified societies. How can citizenship education generally deal with the adversarial potential of different identities in order to prevent conflict?
