4-2019 Participation in Non-Formal Education and Community Education - Implications for Civic and Political Capital

Editors of this Issue

João Caramelo, Camilla Fitzsimons, and Isabel Menezes

This issue of the JSSE aims to address how non-formal and community education experiences might contribute to the civic and political identities and experiences of children, youth, adults and seniors. Even if education is for long recognized as a key predictor of civic and political engagement and participation, it is also true that both educational policy and research seem to privilege the impact of formal education. This special issue seeks to shine a light on practices of non-formal and community education, by exploring whether and how they relate to civic and political participation.

The aim of this contribution is to analyse the concepts of national and European identities through a multidisciplinary lens and to examine empirically how schools develop those identities in adolescents. The development of a European identity especially depends upon its explicit inclusion in the curriculum. Teachers should guide students to reflect on the meaning and content of tolerant and complex national and European identities.
