‘Citizenship, Society and Social Justice: new agendas?’ Conference: 1 July

The International Centre for Education for Democratic Citizenship’s conference, ‘Citizenship, Society and Social Justice: new agendas?’, is taking place on Friday, 1 July at Birkbeck, University of London. Democratic Life is a proud supporter of the conference, which will explore the many possible relationships between citizenship and education, including formal citizenship education.

Through its plenary keynote presentations and the parallel sessions for individual papers, the conference will address issues such as: how should citizenship education engage with agendas of security, social cohesion, volunteering, patriotism, social justice both locally and in the wider world? What is the role of social networking and new media? What kinds of support do citizenship educators need?

Keynote speakers: Engin Isin, Professor of Citizenship Open University; Shakuntala Banaji, LSE; Jesse Norman MP
