Workshop 10: Citizenship education in conflict regions: Challenges, options and dilemmas

The civil war-like conflicts in Ukraine, the war in Syria and the violent escalation of the political conflicts in Egypt serve as exemplary demonstrations of intrastate conflicts turning virulent directly at the external borders of the EU. What role can citizenship education play in this alliance, in the countries concerned and in the member states of the EU? How can and should citizenship education and initiatives react to these conflicts, both in the member states of the EU itself and in the crisis-ridden countries? In this workshop, civil society representatives from Ukraine, Russia and Egypt will describe particular challenges and dilemmas they face in their work.
