Citizenship in Change

Faculty of Education

Citizenship in Change is a research group in educational philosophy. It seeks to revise and develop contemporary theories of education for citizenship and democracy by bringing philosophical research into dialogue with current empirical knowledge about the conditions of education and learning. Our researchers have their backgrounds in different philosophical traditions, which enables us to utilize various perspectives for grasping crucial dimensions of our research theme.

Research Topics:

  • Critical abilities necessary for the citizens of contemporary and future democracies​;
  • Emotional abilities necessary for encountering differences and revising one’s own beliefs​;
  • New forms of civic participation in the era of digitalization and social media​.
