Education

How can children and young people be best educated to live as active citizens in the early years of the twenty-first century? That is a key question at the heart of Education for Citizenship and Diversity in Irish Contexts. This collaborative enterprise brings together academics and practitioners from Ireland north and south, who explore recent and future developments in education for citizenship, in a rapidly changing and increasingly diverse society. Curricular and out-of-school initiatives are explained and examined. Frameworks are presented to enable greater inclusion of diverse learners. The eighteen chapters comprise a blend of insights from pioneers in the field of citizenship education.

Education for Citizenship and Diversity in Irish Contexts offers an engaging range of practical suggestions, conceptual frameworks, critical analyses and policy challenges. The book will be of particular interest to teachers, youth and community workers, policy-makers and those who have an interest in the shifting contexts of modern Irish society.
