 Brief description of your activity focus
Erasmus Academic Network concerned with children and young peoples identity and citizenship

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
CiCe (Children’s Identity and Citizenship in Europe) is an Erasmus Academic Network, supported
by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.

We are a network of about 100 higher education institutions, from 30 countries in Europe. We all share
an interest in the way in which children and young people learn about citizenship in the European
context, and how they construct their identities.

Since 1998 we have brought together staff who educate teachers, early-years workers, youth workers,
social pedagogues and social psychologists. The courses we teach in our universities and colleges, and
the research we undertake, are concerned with the way that individuals, from birth to late teens,
understand and learn about social, political and economic affairs.

Our network helps to create a European approach to these matters as part of a European Higher
Education Area.
 Research Activities

 International and national projects beyond EU Framework Programme
The CiCe Network is funded as an Erasmus project under the Lifelong Learning Programme.

We do not advocate a single view of citizenship, or citizenship of what. However, we are united in believing
in the importance of education in this area, holding that soundly researched, developed and delivered
educational practice on social learning can help promote social integration as well as contribute much to
the fight against racism and xenophobia, and to developing essential attitudes and skills of inter-cultural
communication, tolerance and understanding within a democratic framework.

To this end we have produced a series of booklets that provide:

  • General guidelines on education related to citizenship and identity in Europe
  • Professional guidance on citizenship and identity in courses for those who will work with children
    and young adults
  • Guidelines for citizenship education in a global context;
  • Guidelines for the design of higher education courses at undergraduate and post-graduate level
  • Guidelines for research and research supervision in the area of citizenship and identity

    Together with our Guidelines, presentations from our annual conferences have formed an impressive, and
    growing, data-base of over 700 research and practice-based papers related to children’s identity and
    citizenship in Europe. See http://cice.londonmet.ac.uk

    We we shortly launch our European Centre of Excellence for research in identity and citizenship
    To enhance and build research capacity in this academic field we intend to:
    (a) provide a focus for research in citizenship and identity education which cuts across and interweaves
    with more traditional academic disciplines
    (b) build future research capacity through support for post-graduate research students with regard to
    both their academic development and involvement in the production of this growing academic space
    (c) provide guidance related to cross-disciplinary Continuing Professional Development in research
    (d) foster links between research, innovation and practice

    In addition Network members are involved in numerous research activities and CiCe serves as a well-spring
    for such project initiatives.
