AboutWhat is the value of being a citizen? What are the values that will or should guide the future citizen? How can we rethink the idea of value away from a purely economic model of worth? Is there a blurring of values and morals in today's conception of citizenship?
Within the current political sphere in Europe and beyond we are seeing an attempt to define the values of society, values which dictate who belongs to this economy or society. At the same time, anxieties over the economy, immigration, security and cyberspace correspond to certain values or a struggle over values: what does it mean to live in a secure society? What does it mean to work in a prosperous economy? These questions connect the future citizen to values such as prosperity, equality, privacy, security, and safety.
