Powerful and Distinct: Considering Continuing Themes of Inclusion and Democratic Teaching and Learning in Citizenship and Citizenship Education

An Editorial Introduction


  • Rebecca Evans Queen's University


This editorial introduction provides an overview of the continuing themes of inclusion and democratic teaching that appear across the papers in this edition. The author introduces the four papers and ties them to these themes, which have been present in Citizenship Education Research Network scholarship over the past 25 years. Citizenship ideas change, while at the same time maintaining links to past work and ideas in society. This issue highlights this reality, as authors critically explore the nature of citizenship education in diverse contexts.
