Citizenship Education Without Citizenship?: The Migrant in EU Policy on Participatory Citizenship – Toward the Margin Through ‘Strangification'
2012 (English)In: Education for Civic and Political Participation: A Critical Approach / [ed] Reinhold Hedke & Tatjana Zimenkova, London: Routledge, 2012, 155-170 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
In this chapter, the Migrant is introduced as a key figure in EU eduation politcy on participatory citizenship. It is argued that although there has been an increase in policy efforts that deal with xenophobia and marginalisation in Europe, the EU's education policy implies a 'pushing' of the Migrant toward the margins of what counts as a properly undertaken citizenship education for European participatory citizenship. From a postcolonial perspective, this pushing is being facilitated by processes of 'strangification', which contributes to positioning the Migrant as an incompetent European participatoy citizen in and through education.
