Abstract [en]

What are the gender, class and ethnicity of citizenship? At theoretical approach to a comparative study on citizenship education in England and Sweden. The paper aims to present a theoretical approach that visualize how gender, class and ethnicity affect the real meaning of citizenship, as well as civic education, in the UK and Sweden. The theoretical approach is applied to empirical data (in Swedish and English school) based on three levels as they are presented by Yuval-Davis (2011): First; social locations, second; peoples' identifications and attachments to various collectivities, and thirdly; ethical and political values with which people judge their own and others' belonging/s. Recent research and debate in both countries show how gender, class and ethnicity have great influence on students’ conditions and results at school, which generally has shown to also have a significant impact on youngsters future prospects as adult citizens. According to this intersectional approach, the aspects of gender, class and ethnicity should not primarily be seen as perspectives of social differences in an additive way. Instead, the three aspects, depending on the specific empirical context, interact mutually to constitute the conditions that affect people differently. The purpose of the on-going project is to examine and compare how the ethnicity, gender and social class conditions of citizenship influence on, and are understood by, teachers and secondary school students in England and Sweden. The intention is also to compare how conditions of citizenship are dealt with in social studies for upper secondary school in England and Sweden. The relationship between students' education and real conditions for citizenship is complex and partly differs between, as well as within, the two countries. The present comparative examination and analysis aim to visualize both specific and common conditions of citizenship in England and Sweden.
