Show Synopsis    
Title Study/Evaluation of the progress made in the field of global/development education since Maastricht 2002 (and in new EU member states) 
Description A Pan-European Congress on Global Education will be held in May/June 2012, ten years after
the Maastricht Congress which marked a fundamental stage in the development of
education for global citizenship in Europe, and 5 years after the adoption of the “European
Consensus on Development Education”. This congress, organized jointly by the North-South
Centre of the Council of Europe and the Portuguese Platform of NGOs Plataforma, will bring
together all the relevant stakeholders in Europe, and will be open to any non-European
partners who wish to attend. Basing itself on the Recommendation on education for global
interdependence and solidarity adopted by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of
Europe in May 2011 and on the European Commission’s “DEAR study”1 of late 2010, as well
as on the proposals identified in the national and regional seminars in the new EU member
States, it will aim to draw up a Plan of Action to develop education for global citizenship in
Europe and beyond, which will serve as the basis for a new joint management agreement
between the North-South Centre and the European Commission, covering the period 2013-
2015. The Plan of Action, reflecting commitments from all key stakeholders, should be
agreed prior to the Congress in order to have successful outcomes.

A survey will be used as a background document and qualitative measure for the
conceptualisation, preparation and organisation of the Pan-European Congress. The Expert
will conduct the survey as a direct follow up of the 12 national seminars in Estonia, Latvia,
Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania and Bulgaria, Cyprus
and Malta organised by the North-South Centre in 2009-10 and the three sub-regional
seminars in the Baltic Sea Region, the South East Europe/Mediterranean region and in the
‘Visegrad’ countries that were organised in 2010-11. The objective of the survey is to make
an assessment and measure the (short and long term) impact of the organisation of
national/regional seminars, among CSOs, GOs and other key partners that participated in the
meetings. The survey will take stock of the findings from the seminar reports to measure any
progress and will be furthermore complemented with web-based questionnaires (directed
to seminar participants) and interviews with identified key partners.
