Citizenship, identity, and education: Re-imagining the Contested Terrain

Anatoli Rapoport, Miri Yemini

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Every society faces a dilemma of instilling a shared vision of citizenship, on the one hand, and accommodating specific identities, on the other. This Special Issue addresses the problems of citizenship and democratic education in pluralistic societies that face a challenge of accommodating diversity and maintaining social cohesion. This volume is the result of comprehensive joint efforts of scholars from different countries and regions, who are at various stages of their careers, all working in the field of citizenship studies in education. The papers featured in this collection were presented at the symposium Citizenship, Identity, and Education at the 2018 Comparative and International Education Society conference in Mexico City. We hope that the publication of this Special Issue will contribute to the dialogue about the interplay of citizenship and identity and the role of citizenship and democratic education in identity construction, negotiation, and development.
