Abstract [en]

This article examines how the concept of active citizenship has been given a neo-liberal character byexamining practice in three different educational contexts in Sweden. The concept of active citizenshiphas become influential in educational policy and practice throughout the European Union. The aim of thisarticle is to highlight concerns at how this concept has come to be re-shaped by neo-liberal principles inSwedish education. The analysis highlights three themes, based on voice, ethical awareness and complexityand mutuality of lived experience, and argues that they provide the basis for a shift away from the presentneo-liberal colouring of the concept.
