Critical human rights, citizenship, and democracy education: Entanglements and regenerations
MetadataShow full item record
My reading of this text does not come from within the field of citizenship (CE), democracy (DE) or human rights education (HRE). I am an outsider as far as the debates between CE, HRE and DE go. My interest in the problems at hand is my history as a social justice activist and scholar particularly within the field of adult learning and education (ALE). My doctoral thesis 35 years ago, which was entitled “Education for democratic participation”, studied education processes within anti-apartheid social movements – the issues of citizenship, human rights and democracy are therefore very “close and personal” to my perspective while being framed differently from those of CE, HRE and DE.
