Democratic governance of schools 2007. Council of Europe. 978-92-871-6088-1. Pages: 150. Teaching good citizenship is a current trend in school and university curriculum reform.

It also tackles how educational institutions can evaluate how they contribute to their students' democratic citizenship.
