ENGAGE: Learning Democracy with Children Aged 8-12

How do children aged 8 -12 years learn democracy in Europe? The project ENGAGE aims at identifying success conditions for learning democracy and citizenship education with children and tries to compare the different settings in all countries.

The publication “ENGAGE – learning democracy with children aged 8 – 12 (vol. I)” comprises six national analyses (AT, FR, DE, PL, ESP, UK), identifies common key findings and gives concrete recommendations to advance the situation.

Given the fact that the relevant policies in the 6 participating countries largely differ in their scope, back- up and aims, this study is one of the first European studies that gives a rather qualitative view on the topic as it provides some multi-perspective views backed with interviews from the sphere of non-formal and formal educational practice, youth work and children rights work.
