This study identifies specific ways of teaching active citizenship in contemporary Romania. It is based on the analysis of official documents, observations and interviews with a sample of teachers from pre-school, primary, middle and high schools and universities, designed to foreground ways of teaching active citizenship. Our emphasis is on the contents of the activities, how they were carried out and the results. These activities are part either of the national curriculum or of independent projects and alternative activities in schools and universities. We conclude that whilst there are theoretical instruments to implement the teaching of active citizenship, turning these into practice remains inconsistent and this needs polishing and reinforcement.
