Children's Identity & Citizenship European Association

CiCea is the Association focusing on citizenship education and identity formation in young people in Europe and the world. It is a dynamic and fast-expanding group of academics from across Europe, all engaged in research and scholarship on young people's social learning and their construction of identities.

We've formed this Association after many of us have worked together on a European Commission Erasmus Academic Network project, 'Children's Identity and Citizenship in Europe (CiCe)' since 1998.  This project has only Higher Education institution members. While having started out as an Erasmus project, today it is a Jean Monnet Network project.  It also has its own Website.

Our Association has individual and institutional members, and an elected, independent Executive.

Despina Karakatsani, of the University of the Peloponnese, is President of the CiCe Association from the beginning of October 2016.

Henry Maitles, of the University of the West of Scotland, is the immediate Past President.

Beata Krzywosz-Rynkiewicz, of University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn Poland, is President-Elect and will take on the duties of the Association President effective October 1st, 2018.
