Frances Kidwell was a member of the American delegation to a conference in Tutzing, Germany, on the topic “Solving Ethno-National Conflicts in Europe: An Example to the Rest of the World?” The conference was cosponsored by the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Tutzing Academy for Civic Education, and the Center for Civic Education.

The conference inspired Kidwell’s report entitled “Civic Education for a Global World.” In her words, “The conference focused on the topic of minority rights, the protection of national minorities, and the relationship to civic education. Discussion and presentation of research analyzed the implications of international politics on the role of citizenship, global trends, and geo-political issues that bleed over the borders of 21st century nation-states.” The report can be read in its entirety at on the Center’s website.
