This book presents an inter-disciplinary and mixed-method analysis of the role that education has played in the European citizenship project from 1949 to the present day. Using a wide range of sources, both historical and contemporary, qualitative and quantitative, the book explores the evolving relationship between the nation-state, citizenship and the education of citizens, asking how has citizenship been conceptualised in the education policies emanating from European institutions and how has this changed over time? How have European citizenship education policies been interpreted in, and adapted for, the national-level policy arenas? And what impact has education about European citizenship had on young people's knowledge, attitudes and practices of national and European modes of citizenship?
