Citizenship education and the personalization of democracy
Author: H. Hermans & R. Bartels, Routledge 2020 Summary: The central message of this educational book is that democracy needs the personal contribution of committed citizens.

The authors stress that the development of personalised democracy and global citizenship requires participation at different levels of identity. Written for future secondary school teachers, the book contains dialogical self theory, research and a wide range of exercises.
