Cross-national Comparison of Educational Policies and Curricula -Cultural Heritage and Identities of Europe's Future (CHIEF)

Abstract

The aim of this report is to enhance understandings of cultural literacy in formal educational settings by providing a comparative overview of approaches and implementations across the nine CHIEF countries (including Germany, UK, Spain, Latvia, Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, Turkey and India). To this end, the report brings together the current, dominant approaches to cultural literacy and issues arising from their implementation. The report builds on the findings of the national cultural/educational policy reviews and sets them alongside the findings of the national curriculum reviews, to build a comparative overview of the interconnections between the policy frameworks and curriculum guidelines within and across the nine different countries. The findings are organised under six sections, representing the main thematic categories identified in the policy and curriculum reports. These include the discussion of cultural literacy as a concept and the alternative terms used in meeting related objectives as well as the themes of cultural heritage, national culture and identities, Europe, language, religion and history, post-socialism, and post-imperialism.
