This book provides a framework for Citizenship Education in the context of cultural diversity. Underpinning Citizenship Education has to be an understanding and practice of human rights. The contributors show how human rights principles are used by schools to challenge structural inequality, discrimination and exclusion and to support young people in developing confident identities in contexts of diversity. Case studies illustrate how students can realise their rights and responsibilities as citizens.

Leading researchers and expert teachers worked over two years in seminars funded by the ESRC and in debate with Bernard Crick, to produce this authoritative and coherent work. "Citizenship and Democracy in Schools" is the core text for continuing professional development courses in Citizenship Education and will also be required reading on initial teacher training. The book is essentially designed for the UK, but international and comparative approaches are provided by several contributors
