Focus of the training activity:
Ever since its founding, the Council of Europe has steadily supported activities and initiatives
aimed at the dissemination of its basic principles, standards and values including human
rights, democracy and the rule of law. In particular, over the last two decades considerable
attention has been given also to the development of training schemes as well as teaching and
learning materials. Yet, as the authors of the All-European Study on Education for Democratic
Citizenship published by the Council of Europe have found out, there is a ‘compliance gap’
between political statements, policy intentions and implementation measures hampering
seriously the area of education for democratic citizenship. Overcoming these and other
challenges has become one of the priorities supported by the CoE, including the Pestalozzi
Programme, the EDC project as well as other project initiatives and dissemination activities.
This training activity undertaken as part of the Pestalozzi Programme directs to unravel the
interconnection between the theory, policy and practice in the area of education for
democratic citizenship and human rights education in western Balkan states.
The workshop will explore which particular aspects of education for democracy the training
cooperation and networking should focus on. This will be done by defining similarities and
differences as well as specific issues of each region. It will also explore the strengths and
opportunities offered by such a form of regional cooperation as well as the concrete form the
cooperation and networking could take.
The aim is twofold, on the one hand, building on existing activities and initiatives undertaken
by the Council of Europe together with national authorities from participating countries, it aims
to present the most important teaching and learning materials in the area of education for
democratic citizenship and human rights education. On the other hand, it aims to offer ample
room for both the participants and the speakers to discuss in detail the challenges and
opportunities teaching and learning materials play in the implementation of the basic concepts
and core competences associated with education for democratic citizenship in the non-ideal
circumstances of everyday pedagogical practice.

Expected results:
This training activity will explore various aspects the cooperation and networking in the area of
teaching and learning materials on education for democratic citizenship and human rights
education leave largely unexamined. In particular, the similarities and differences between
different CoE member states in this area of scholarly research as well as the challenges and
opportunities faced by different stakeholders will be explored. At the same time, this training
activity aims to identify the priorities and topics of common interest among the participants of
this seminar as well as envisage a set of follow-up activities and initiatives aimed to
strengthen the teaching and learning of basic concepts and core competences associated
with education for democratic citizenship. Moreover, this training initiative aims to explore the
various opportunities this form of cooperation and networking offers to various stakeholders in
the region as well as to offer a model of cooperation and networking in the area of education
for democratic citizenship for other CoE members states/regions.
The overall aim of this European workshop is therefore to further strengthen the regional
cooperation and networking in the training of education professionals over the basic
principles, standards and values of the Council of Europe in the field of education with a
particular emphasis on the pedagogy promoted and modelled by the Pestalozzi Programme.
Furthermore, this training activity is intended to start an on-going process with subsequent
European Workshops proposed and hosted by the other participating Western Balkan
countries on an annual basis.
