NECE 2018


Brave New Worlds?! The Future of Democracy and Citizenship Education


Liberal democracy is in a state of crisis. Worldwide, a "democratic recession" can be observed, even in countries that have long claimed a leading role in defending and spreading democratic values and freedoms. Uncertainties about the future of the European Union and its transformation into a "Citizens’ Europe" are shaping the run-up to the European Parliament elections in May 2019. 

This year's NECE conference in Marseilles will provide a platform for the development of strategies on how citizenship education and civil society can counter the negative trend in liberal democracy and defend the civic space and basic democratic rights and freedoms in our societies.
