Teaching Common Values in Europe

    Project Details


    The European Parliament initiated a research project about teaching common values in the official school curricula of the 28 EU-countries. The values of democracy and tolerance are of particular interest. Developing an overview and a comparison of various national approaches is the objective of this study.
    Teaching Common Values (TCV) can be part of different subjects and activities, in particular citizenship education. In this research we examine the curriculum on common values in secondary schools, with a focus on democracy and tolerance.
