Education for Citizenship in Swedish RE - Approaches and Dilemmas in Teachers’ Talk
University of Gävle, Faculty of Education and Business Studies, Department of Educational sciences, Educational science. (STORIES)

Abstract [en]

In Sweden, religious education (RE) has successively developed into a school subject that aims to foster democratic citizenship that is characterised by social cohesion and tolerance of religious and life stance differences. This can be interpreted in different ways by teachers in the RE curriculum. The article presents 4 different approaches to how RE teachers in Sweden teach democratic citizenship in RE. Each approach has its own dilemmas and conflicting positions. Shedding light on teachers’ reasoning about these approaches and the resulting dilemmas contributes to the understanding of education for democratic citizenship in Swedish RE.
