23 SES 07 D, Civil Competence and Partnership
Parallel Paper Session
The Education and Training 2020 policy agenda (ET 2020) continues to identify Active Citizenship as one of the four major policy goals and continues to support national governments in developing key competences, including civic competences, of its citizens. Active Citizenship was a priority of the 2011 Hungarian Presidency, and Education Ministers were invited to debate this issue at a March 2011 meeting. An outcome of this meeting was the ministers’ support for the development of a new composite indicator on civic competence.
Based on these policy needs, we created a new composite indicator on civic competence, the Civic Competence Composite Indicator 2 (CCCI-2). It comprises four dimensions: ‘Participatory Attitudes’, ‘Citizenship Values’, ‘Social Justice Values’, and ‘Knowledge and Skills for Democracy’. The data was obtained from young people between 13 and 14 years old as part of the IEA International Citizenship and Civic Education Study 2009 conducted in 38 countries.
The findings of this indicator show that wealth and democratic stability in a country do not guarantee democratically engaged youth. Young people’s positive attitudes towards participation and their citizenship values are often stronger in relatively poor countries with recent breaks in democracy in South and East Europe. Furthermore, democracies in North and West Europe appear to be fostering a non-participatory culture. However, the reverse is true for social justice attitudes and knowledge and skills on democracy, which are supported by more wealthy and democratically stable countries. These trends are consistent with the results of the original Civic Competence Composite Indicator, using data from 10 years ago, thus suggesting a consistency of civic cultures amongst the younger generations.
