Research for CULT Committee – Teaching Common Values in Europe

Veugelers, W, de Groot, I & Stolk, V 2017, Research for CULT Committee – Teaching Common Values in Europe, European Parliament, Policy Department for Structural and Cohesion Policies, Brussels. Pages: 220

This study explores the teaching of common values in Europe, in particular democracy and tolerance—if and how they are addressed by EU Member States' official curricula for students in secondary education. The role of civil society and non-governmental organisations is also considered. Country chapters set out the situation in 12 EU Member States and show that in many cases, there are considerable gaps between general policy aims and concrete implementing measures, and between policy and practice.
