Many members of the Network have formed an independent Association. This is a European Academic Association, with institutional and individual members, who pay an annual membership subscription. The Association has its own journal for members, Citizenship Teaching and Learning, and also awards small research grants to its members. The officers of the Association are elected, and form the Executive than coordinates the CiCe Network.
Not all University or College members of the Network have joined the Association, but an increasing number are recognising the advantages of the Journal, the research grants and the opportunities offered by an Association that is free of the Commission.
The Association is registered as a Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee under English law.
