About the Standing Group

The Standing Group on Citizenship investigates citizenship and its personal, cultural, social, economy and political implications through interdisciplinary research from multiple theoretical perspectives.

It addresses how citizenship continues to formulate relations between polities and individuals through rights, duties, participation and identities. In the context of increased diversity, less participation and growing political distrust, the Standing Group also explores and researches how schools prepare citizens for their civic life in citizenship education.
