ICCS 2016 results were reported in three publications: the International Report, the European Report and the Latin American Report. The International Report contained results from all participating education systems while the European and Latin American reports contained results from the respective regional questionnaires.
The International and European reports were released at a joint event in November 2017 and the Latin American report was released in April 2018.
ICCS 2016 results were released on 7 November, 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. The event brought together experts, senior officials, policy makers and other stakeholders connected to the field of civic and citizenship education (CCE). The release was organized by IEA with the support of the European Commission Directorate-General for Education and Culture (DG -EAC).
Moderated by ICCS Study Director Mr Ralph Carstens, the event commenced with an introduction by Dr Dirk Hastedt, Executive Director, IEA and Mr Jens Nymand Christensen, Deputy Director-General of the European Commission DG EAC. ICCS Research Director, Dr Wolfram Schulz (ACER) presented the international findings and ICCS Associate Research Director, Dr Bruno Losito (Roma Tre University) presented the European report. The presentations were followed by a lively panel discussion.
The launch event of the Latin American results from ICCS 2016 took place on April 11, 2018, in Lima in cooperation with the Ministry of Education of Peru and hosted by Grupo de Análisis para el Desarrollo (GRADE). It gathered a number of national research coordinators, high-level experts and stakeholders connected to the field of civic and citizenship education (CCE).
The Latin American addition to ICCS 2016 offers a unique insight regarding key features of the national contexts for the five participating countries: Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Peru. The report shows that the way in which CCE is represented on countries’ national curricula differs and is strongly influenced by their historical and political backgrounds.
