Transformace populismu a nacionalismu v zemích Visegradu

Abou the project 

The project will be focused on an analysis of populism and nationalism regarding several civic disciplines. The main advantage of the proposed project is that it tackles the current issues of populism and nationalism at first from a national aspect of particular V4 countries and in the final part there will be a synthesis of all these views. The synthesis will help to make these views easily applicable for teachers at elementary and secondary schools in terms of civic education. An indisputable benefit for the target groups of academics and students will be the view expansion towards the issue of new concepts and the possibility to publish or present their own ideas.

The project builds on the results of the previous research carried out within the framework of the project Social, Cultural, Ethical and Politics Aspects of Migration in the Context of Civic Education  (ID 21610139).
