Civic Education: Practitioners’ Conference:
“Towards a national understanding of civic education”
The Democracy Development Program (DDP), is planning to host a conference for Civic Education institutions and practitioners in South Africa in late 2020 and invites interested candidates to submit a paper to be presented at this conference.
This conference is to explore the possibility of developing a common national understanding of civic education, and will also be a space to share and reflect on the existing civic education delivery methods and identify the synergy among them. The conference will further cultivate a space for the practitioners to discuss and think about how to measure the impact of civic education; and explore a way towards the consolidation of the evolving regional community of practice in civic education as a hub of knowledge exchange and continuous support.
Papers will be accepted in responding to one or more of the following themes:
The conference targets representatives from various civic education institutions, academics and researchers, including donor community, local government practitioners, traditional leaders, civil society, government officials, public administration students, legal fraternity as well as representatives from various political parties, the private sector and labour unions.
Interested applicants wishing to present their original research should submit extended abstracts(1000 – 1500 words) by Tuesday, 15 May 2020, 12 Noon (South African time).
