Higher Education, Educational Policy and Citizenship Development
Given the fact that countries can differ in their educational policy and practice and that these national contexts are influenced by international developments makes it interesting to do comparative research into policy and practice of different countries. In this article we present the results of a comparative inquiry into citizenship and citizenship education policies and practices in different countries. The study was conducted in the context of the RIAIPE3 project (Teodoro & Guilherme, 2014) in which universities of Europe, Central America and Latin America cooperated in research on the role of universities in stimulating equity, social cohesion and democracy. This study aimed to gain an insight into the policies and practices in European and Latin American countries on citizenship development in higher education, thus providing novel insight into the commonalities and differences among these countries.
