This Handbook provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the current field of citizenship and education. It draws on insights from a range of disciplines to explore historical, philosophical, theological, sociological and psychological ideas on how the two concepts intersect and is international in scope, authorship and readership.

Five sections provide a clear outline of:
Foundational thinkers on, and the theories of, citizenship and education;
Citizenship and education in national and localised contexts;
Citizenship and education in transnational contexts;
Youth, advocacy, citizenship and education;
Contemporary insights on citizenship and education;

It will be essential for scholars interested in how theorizations of citizenship, civic identity and participatory democracy are, and could be, operationalized within educational theories, educational debates, educational curricular, and pedagogic practices.
