Eurydice publication on education policy developments following the Paris Declaration of 17 March 2015


The last day of the NECE conference 2016 began with several parallel sessions. One of the sessions focused on the current key processes in European education policy. The panel addressed the question what NGOs as citizenship education providers can change within the European policy frames and how to advance educational processes from the perspective of their work. The speaker of this session presented the Eurydice publication “Promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education” which deals with education policy developments following the Paris Declaration of 17 March 2015. You can find more information on this publication in the link below.

Violent extremism and terrorist attacks have surged across Europe over the past years, posing a threat to the safety of European citizens and the fundamental values of freedom, democracy, equality, respect for the rule of law, human rights and dignity. In response to these atrocities, and in order to reaffirm Europe's determination to stand shoulder to shoulder in support of fundamental values that lie at the heart of the European Union, the EU Education Ministers and Commissioner Navracsics adopted the Paris Declaration in March 2015. The Declaration aims at promoting citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education.

The presented leaflet provides a short overview of recent education policy developments in European countries related to the objectives of the Paris Declaration. It also analyses the aspects of education systems covered by these policies as well as the levels of education concerned. It covers the 28 EU Member States, which are signatories to the Declaration, as well as other members of the Eurydice Network.
