What is Cicea?

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 had only Higher Education institution members. While having started out as an Erasmus project, it later became a Jean Monnet Network project.  It also had its own Website.

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