Civic Education in the 21st Century: An Analytical and Methodological Global Overview

Executive Summary

The goal of civic education is to produce active citizens who engage and participate in the democratic processes of society.
However, since the breakup of the Soviet Union and throughout the beginning of the 21st century, many countries have
struggled to meet that goal. The clearest measure of the challenges of civic education comes from the IEA civics study,
the most comprehensive analysis of the global trends in civic education at the turn of the century. Based on the results of
the survey and other research, experts in the civic education field have produced a list of six proven practices that can
serve as a guide for the implementation of effective civic educational experiences in a variety of contexts. This paper
presents an additional six recommendations for civic education in Ukraine.
