Migration, Social Transformation, and Education for Democratic Citizenship
6th EARLI-SIG 13 Conference & 2nd InZentIM Conference
The Special Interest Group Moral and Democratic Education of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction (EARLI SIG 13) and the Interdisciplinary Center for Integration and Migration Research (InZentIM) will jointly host the Conference “Migration, Social Transformation, and Education for Democratic Citizenship” on August 27-29, 2018. The Conference will be held at the University of Duisburg-Essen on the Essen Campus.
Migration both causes and requires societal change. To date, processes of acculturation have been insufficiently addressed as a context for civic and citizenship education. Also, specific measures of civic and citizenship education purposely targeting societal change as caused by migration, as well as their potential effects, have been investigated too seldom so far. The conference aims at an internationalisation of the discourse relating to issues of civic and citizenship education in immigration societies. Scientists and researchers from various disciplines (e.g., psychology, educational science, sociology, political science) will discuss their research with an international audience.
