Policy Recommendation for the Development of Education for Democratic Citizenship in Elementary and Secondary Schools

This policy recommendation is the product of an 18-month-long research and development program, through which the Kurt Lewin Foundation aimed to explore what impact the school—as an organizational-functional environment—has on students’ active citizenship, democratic values, knowledge, and acceptance of anti-democratic ideas. 

The recommendation suits real needs and opportunities; at the same time it offers a methodological model. It provides specific pieces of advice both in the fields of strategy development and execution.
