Södertörn University, School of Social Sciences, Political Science.ORCID iD: 0000-0001-8412-6097
2019 (English)In: Handbook of Research on Education for Participative Citizenship and Global Prosperity / [ed] José A. Pineda-Alfonso, Nicolás De Alba-Fernández & Elisa Navarro-Medina, Hershey, PA: IGI Global, 2019, p. 431-446Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this chapter is to investigate salient approaches to citizenship and civic-normative educationin liberal democratic life. The chapter argues that core technocratic assumptions about clarity,linearity, and predictability feeding into civic-educational deployment and change warrant critical attention.The chapter aims to shed new light on states’ instinct to regard themselves and their value setsas seamless conceptual wholes. A range of ramifications of this typical approach are interrogated, inprinciple as well as in relation to Swedish civic-educational matrices. The chapter refines a heuristicmodel for unpacking citizenship and civic-normative education thinking in liberal democracy originallypresented in an earlier work by the author. It is concluded that even as the enormous policy efforts thatgo into organizing and revamping public civic-normative education in response to new societal challengeshave little chance of meeting governments’ intentions; they may still be important since they areexerted in highly visible public spaces and domains.
