Jean Monnet Teacher Training (ACTIVEUC 2022-2025) and Jean Monnet Chair in Active European Citizenship (KM-KEU 2021-2024). Both Erasmus+ projects are based in the Hub in Active European Citizenship, coordinated by Dr. Emmanuelle Schon-Quinlivan in UCC.
The JM TT develops tools for education on European issues. The project does this by creating training for teachers, and content for students, at primary and post-primary level. It emphasises deliberative practice to empower young citizens. It involves online and in-person engagement with students and teachers in Ireland and across the European Union.
The JM Chair develops opportunities for engagement on European issues. The project does this by coordinating and collaborating on; active citizenship projects at primary and post-primary level, deliberative teaching and events at third level, and public engagement events. It emphasises deliberative practice to empower young citizens. It involves online and in-person engagement with students at all education levels and the wider public through community events.
Research and publications on both projects focus on political efficacy, deliberative practice in political education and engagement, and the socialisation of political identity.
