Online Book Launch | ICCS Influences


A two-day online event to celebrate the upcoming volume, Influences of the IEA Civic and Citizenship Education Studies: Practice, Policy, and Research Across Countries and Regions.

This open access book identifies the multiple ways that IEA’s studies of civic and citizenship education have contributed to national and international educational discourse, research, policymaking, and practice. The chapters in the first part of the book cover perspectives from 15 countries, and in the second half of the book chapters reflect on regional issues and opportunities for further research.

To release this unique volume, IEA hosted an online book event on 1 June and an ICCS workshop on 2 June. The purpose of the online book event was to introduce the book and hear from policy and research voices on the status of civic and citizenship education across countries. Issues concerned with future practice and research will be discussed. To see all speakers participating please go to the speaker page.
