Against this background, this international workshop in philosophy of education focuses on the question, how should the nature and role of democratic education be understood in the context of the current political, cultural, and theoretical landscape? Is the idea that education plays a key role in creating democratic citizens implausible and outdated? If not, how should the theories and practices of democratic education be reformed to meet the many challenges of contemporary democracies?
