Andrews, Rhys and Mycock, Andrew (2007) Citizenship education in the UK: devolution, diversity and divergence. Citizenship Teaching and Learning, 3 (1). pp. 73-88. ISSN 1751-1917

The recent introduction of Citizenship in England marked an important
moment in the history of education in the UK. But to what extent does citizenship
education receive equal attention within the four UK Home Nations? And, what are
the implications of different approaches to citizenship education? This paper
assesses the nature of citizenship education in the four nations of the UK, examining
the divergent approaches and attitudes towards citizenship education in England,
Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Challenges for the future of citizenship
education in the UK are explored, before the paper concludes by arguing that great
care is required to ensure parity of provision is upheld across the evolving multinational
education system.
