Our Standing Group on Citizenship is pleased to announce the launch of its virtual seminar series with an aim to provide a platform for scholars to share and engage with current research in the fields of citizenship and citizenship education.

Comprising three to four seminars each year, the seminar series invites Standing Group members and specially invited presenters to discuss and intellectually explore specific themes related to citizenship.

Join this event to:

  • Explore the latest thinking in the field
  • Connect with like-minded scholars 
  • Share your insights and debate the topics presented

About the Standing Group

Established in 2013, the Standing Group on Citizenship investigates citizenship and its personal, cultural, social, economic and political implications, through interdisciplinary research from multiple theoretical perspectives. It seeks to address how citizenship continues to formulate relations between polities and individuals through rights, duties, participation and identities.

In the context of increased diversity, reduced participation and growing political distrust, the Standing Group also explores how schools prepare citizens for their civic life in citizenship education.
