In recent years, there has been a revitalized interest in conceptions and practices of citizenship. This paper outlines and comments upon the first stage of the Council of Europe's Education for Democratic Citizenship (EDC) project that ran between 1997 and 2000. Involving the creation of 'Sites of Citizenship' in different countries, the EDC project sought 'to actively engage in the process of finding out the new shape of democratic culture and the means by which individuals can creatively participate in its reproduction'. Although the EDC project is not yet completed, it is suggested that there are a number of distinctive, 'risky' and innovative features to the project that merit closer attention.
