Conceptual Framework and Vision of Education for Democracy

The first major result of the Democrat HorizonEurope project is the Conceptual Framework and Vision: Responsible Democratic Citizenship and Education for Democracy.

There are several well-funded competence frameworks for citizenship competences in democratic societies, but they do not place enough emphasis on the nature of democratic agency. The analysis of models of democracy, together with current frameworks for citizenship competences defines four competences for responsible democratic citizenship: solidary participation, deliberation, judgment, and democratic resilience. Three transversal axes are identified: globalization, digitalization and sustainability.
