Abstract [en]

How to outline an education for a democratic citizenship beyond national boundaries? In times of globalization, and with intensified pressure from the European Union on its nation states to provide for a common European identity through education, this question becomes crucial for national policy making within Europe. In this text focus rests on Swedish Education policy, in order to shed light upon what is marked out for Swedish compulsory schools’ commission to foster democratic citizens at the end of the 20th century. On the basis of earlier done policy research, it is argued that the Swedish fostering agenda do tend to transcend the nation state. But, at the same time, certain groups of people tend to be included, while others are being excluded. It is argued that these including and excluding divides are based upon presupposed ethno-cultural properties.
