This website is being developed as a resource material for students enrolled in the course ‘Citizenship Learning and Participatory Democracy’ (which I teach regularly at OISE/UT) and for all those interested in these issues. The site includes three main themes:
The first relates to citizenship learning, which in turn is related to theories of citizenship.
The second theme relates to the theory and practice of participatory democracy.
The third theme (the ‘meeting place’) explores the connections between citizenship learning and participatory democracy.
For an introduction to these themes, see Three theses on citizenship learning and participatory democracy.
For readings on citizenship learning and participatory democracy, see library.
I hope you enjoy
this website, and please send me an email
with any contributions or with any suggestions for improvements that you
