Moving Forwards, Stepping Backwards, Supranational Organizations and History Teaching in Post-Communist Europe
Abstract:The article discusses recent trends in history education in CEE and argues that in recent years the process of reform has come to a standstill and that there even seems to be a trend back to more monolithic national narratives in several countries. The article reviews the European Standing Conference of History Teachers Associations (EUROCLIO), which was established to contribute to the construction of the idea of Europe, and its impact on history education. The article concludes by suggesting various reasons for this change of climate.
