Education and democracy in dangerous times

Riddle, Stewart and Apple, Michael W. (2019) Education and democracy in dangerous times. In: Re-imagining education for democracy. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), Abingdon, United Kingdom, pp. 1-9. ISBN 978-0-367-19712-4


In this book, we seek to consider the importance of education and sustainable democracy in a time of dangerous uncertainty. By engaging with multiple perspectives on participatory democracy and education, we hope to more fully understand the principles of a sustainable and collective commitment to civic virtue through education. What does it mean for democracy in a time of enormous global uncertainty and challenge, when the structures that have upheld the story of Western liberal democracies—capitalism, (neo)liberalism, and democracy—are either straining or completely coming apart? The rise of neo-fascism and increasing global tensions require us to consider how we might better inoculate societies from the social diseases of war, inequality, and potential social collapse.
