Slide Common values, sense of belonging and social Cohesion© | Roberta Medda-Windischer

At the workshop From Multiculturalism to Interculturalism in Education Policy: Which Role for Religion held in Trento on 1st March, Roberta Medda-Windischer, presenting her work titled 'Civic Education and Common Values: Meanings, Criticisms, Reflections', discussed on civic/citizenship education and the linkage with social cohesion and sense of belonging, noting that this linkage may lead to two approaches of civic/citizenship education.

Research questions : What type of relation can it be envisaged between the spreading of civic/citizenship education in the education systems and the cognitivist approach towards religious education? Are they converging in their goals or can they be conflictual? This paper delves into the potential relationship between the integration of civic/citizenship education and the cognitivist approach to religious education. It examines whether these two educational paradigms converge in their goals or if inherent conflicts exist. This study seeks to shed light on the complex dynamics between civic education and religious instruction and their implications for educational frameworks worldwide.
