How can children and young people be best educated to live as active citizens in the early years of the twenty first century? This is a key question at the heart of education for citizenship and diversity in Irish contexts. This collaborative enterprise brings together academics and practitioners from Ireland North and South, who explore recent and future developments in education for citizenship in a rapidly changing and increasingly diverse society. Curricular and out of school initiatives are explained and examined. Frameworks for greater inclusion of diverse learners are presented. The eighteen chapters include a blend of insights from pioneers in the field of citizenship education.
