Civic attitudes and behavioural intentions in the 2016 International Civic and Citizenship Education Study (ICCS)

In the current context of rising populism, racism, intolerance and scepticism among European Union (EU) citizens, coupled with a decreasing level of electoral participation rates in several Member States, the European Commission has the clear mandate to reinforce EU citizens’ commitment to Europe’s common democratic values.

Educational institutions are essential agents in promoting a learning environment that can support a Europe that is fair, inclusive and more democratic. To serve this goal, schools are expected to contribute to civic and citizenship knowledge creation as well as to the shaping of students’ beliefs and attitudes.
