Product Description:

For many years the fields of citizenship education and participatory democracy have often operated independently from each other. During the last decade the Transformative Learning Centre of the University of Toronto has nurtured multiple spaces for an interdisciplinary dialogue among scholars practitioners and students from these two fields. One of those spaces was the Second International Conference on Citizenship Learning and Participatory Democracy where close to 300 participants from all over the world shared ideas in more than 150 sessions including discussions round-tables workshops and keynote addresses. This volume brings together a selected collection from the many papers submitted to the conference. Learning Citizenship by Practicing Democracy: International Initiatives and Perspectives includes an introductory essay 18 chapters and a postscript and is organized in three sections: I. Learning democracy in educational institutions II. Learning democracy in communities III. Learning democracy in participatory budgeting The articles in this book represent a variety of perspectives (as the authors come from different geographical and disciplinary locations) but they all share a commitment to improvements in theory research and practice in the worldwide movement for deepening democracy and for an emancipatory citizenship education.
