"Us" and "Them": Citizenship Education in an Interdependent World

NECE Conference 2015 - Call for Papers and Projects

Berlin – 29 Jun. 2015 | To prepare the NECE Conference 2015 “´Us` and ´Them`: Citizenship Education in an Interdependent World”, the NECE Network is launching a call for projects and papers. Interested parties from NGOs, foundations, associations, multipliers and responsible bodies from schools, non-formal and informal citizenship education as well as from cultural education entities from all over Europe and North Africa are invited to submit proposals for the presentation of their work in the accompanying project market and/ or academic papers. The organizers of the NECE Conference will choose a selected number of papers / projects from the submissions. Successful projects / papers will be included in the programme development and they will contribute to the participative character of the event. Selected submissions might also be invited to the workshops at the NECE Conference 2015.

"Landscape" means an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors (European Landscape Convention). Landscape is a social construction, depending on our socialisation, on our history, tradition and meanings. In our todays world we meet each other - "us" and "them" - in our daily landscapes. The planning and management of landscapes has to deal with different approaches and perceptions.

The focus of the submissions should be the causes, processes and consequences of “othering” for citizenship education. The projects / models / ideas / academic papers should refer to the three central thematic areas of the conference and illustrate their connection to civic education:

  • “The EU in Crisis”: The impact of Europe’s economic and political division, which has triggered discourses fuelled by fears and dissociation in the core countries of the EU and nationalistic and populist movements in core countries as well as in the southern periphery of the EU.
  • “´The West` and the ´Islamic World`”: The perception of a clash of civilizations between the ‘West’ and the ‘Islamic World’ which is leading to dangerous developments on both sides of the Mediterranean.
  • “Russia, Ukraine and ´the West`”: The repercussions of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict and the challenges for civil society in Eastern Europe and Russia to cope with situations of war and ideological and nationalist regression and hatred.
