Reviews

“Aril Keating’s Education for Citizenship in Europe is a very well-organised book, concisely written yet with detailed analysis. While on one level a specialist read, it is sufficiently rooted in contemporary debates about citizenship to appeal to a wider audience. The book is primarily focused on European policies to promote citizenship education but as becomes clear these are at times difficult to disentangle from national contexts.” (Chris Gifford, Citizenship Studies, December, 2015)

"A close reading of Keating's text provides more detailed discussion than space affords in this review, but for all educators with an interest in CE in Europe, this scholarly work will be an important resource." - Research in International & Comparative Education
