How is a “good citizen” presented in pedagogical texts? What social values are highlighted? Whose and what stories are told to the students? These are examples of some of the issues that Annika Rabo along with five other researchers in the project “Future citizens in pedagogic texts and educational policy. Examples from Lebanon, Sweden and Turkey” seek to answer.

The article entitled “Recherche transnationale: l’éducation et les citoyens de demain” explains the research project which is support by the Educational committee of the Swedish Research Council. The examination and analysis of education policies and texts in a comparative international perspective can shed light on the varying national educational contexts and act as an entry point for analyses of global processes of change relevant to schools and education. Schools remain an important educational arena where the citizens of the future both emerge and are constructed. The project analyses policy documents and interviews with school politicians and textbook authors are also conducted.
