This paper summarises the discussions and conclusions of Working Group 1 of the 2010 European Values Network. The Working Group met for a two-day workshop in Brussels in March and since then has engaged in research and debate online. During a second workshop from 8–12 May 2010 in Prague, the group met to evaluate and refine the conclusions presented below. Our starting point is the observation that engagement in democratic politics is in a dissatisfactory state. There are many symptoms of this including declining electoral participation and low trust in political institutions and the governing elite. But above all, political disengagement represents a certain view of politics, remote and inaccessible to ordinary citizens, benefitting only a select few rather than making collectively acceptable choices. Disengagement from democratic politics challenges the way we organise decision-making in our societies. It goes to the heart of one of the most cherished set of norms, enshrined in the legal and living constitutions of states in Europe and beyond. We were asked to analyse the phenomenon in greater depth and to develop recommendations that could contribute to greater and deeper engagement with democratic politics. Political disengagement is a complex phenomenon that varies across social groups and over time both in terms of its manifestations and its determinants. Therefore, we found it preferable to focus our discussions on a sub-set of the problem and its solution: young people and education. Predispositions for political engagement are developed and habitualised at an early stage of political participation. The way young people engage in politics is likely to shape, though not determine, patterns of political disengagement throughout their lives.1 We focus on education because the way individuals become acquainted with politics in school can be shaped more easily than other influences on the political engagement of youth. Our purpose, in sum, is to discuss how educational systems could contribute to greater political engagement of young people. Political engagement is a two-dimensional phenomenon including, but not confined to, formal participation such as voting. Formal participation is of critical importance if “democracy” is to be more than merely a fashionable term. On the other hand, engagement also refers to the critical awareness of public affairs among individuals. That is, their interest in matters of common concern and their ability to make critical, informed and conscious choices as to how they wish to position themselves in relation to such matters. Participation and critical awareness form two sides of the concept of political engagement. Our question, therefore, must be how the educational system may contribute to either of these two dimensions. We come to two main conclusions. On the one hand, we need more and better courses in civic education. Importantly, quantity itself is not sufficient but the style and substance of the classes has to be taken into account. On the other hand, we also draw attention to a strategy of animating civic education and call for more opportunities for young people to experience real-world politics.
