CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Identifying, Collecting, Organizing, and Publicizing Democracy Education Materials

November 20, 2014

The Community of Democracies offers a one-time opportunity to make a global impact on education for democracy by conducting a project on identifying, collecting, organizing and publicizing democracy education materials.

The Permanent Secretariat of the Community of Democracies requests applications that support the efforts of the Community of Democracies Working Group on Education for Democracy  to assemble educational materials on democratization and make them publicly available. 

Update: Following the big number of applications, please read the Frequently Asked Questions

Description of the Project:
Funded by the Community of Democracies Working Group on Education for Democracy, the project will encompass the collection and organization of educational materials on democratization, civil society, and civics into a free online format useful to students, educators, civil society, and others in emerging democracies worldwide.  These materials will then be made publicly available, including through but not limited to the Community of Democracies’ website.  Materials should address topics such as elections and separation of powers, and could consist of a variety of informative, engaging materials (e.g. websites, videos, worksheets, transcripts, slideshows, etc.) that contribute to the audience’s understanding of the topic.
Through this announcement, we seek to support democratic consolidation at the grassroots level by providing a means by which educators and students in emerging democracies can easily access quality information on the roles of individuals and groups in the functioning of a democratic society.  The materials should be broadly relevant to a wide audience of emerging states.
