Do we need Radical Citizenship Education?

In this episode we discuss a radical approach to citizenship education, how it should be understood and implemented by young people and youth sector.
Citizenship education remains a contested term, lacking a universally accepted definition. Both, the understanding and practice of citizenship education have been discussed by educational institutions, the youth sector, political parties, ideologies, cultures and society as a whole. While citizenship education is often understood in relation to democracy, human rights and young people's participation in decision-making processes, some researchers and practitioners argue that we need to go beyond the current practice and consider a radical reform in the way citizenship education is taught.
