Brugge 2001: Learning for a Democratic Europe

The third CiCe Annual CiCe Network Conference was held in Bruges, Belgium. Papers presented at the Brugge conference focussed on the issue of education for democracy: democracy in pre-schools, schools and other institutions for children and young people, and education in democracy for these children and young people. In particular, focus was on how students in higher education in Europe could be prepared, through their courses of instruction and preparation for professional practice, to best introduce democratic norms and behaviour to young people.

Jan Kerkofs, Professor Emeritus, University of Leuven, Belgium, gave an opening address that resumed ways in which European values are changing.
