The process of European integration has been based on key values such as peace, democracy, freedom and tolerance. However, these values are currently in risk because of socio-economic problems, violent extremism and a lack of trust in democratic processes. The role of education and training, and more specifically citizenship education is very important in addressing these challenges. However, citizenship education in Europe is usually limited in scope and in the approach and cannot provide to the students a full ownership of the democratic values in which our societies are based.
