Citizenship allows a person to be recognised as a member of a society, of a state, and thus to participate in its political life. A constitution ensures this fundamental right.
There are, however, situations of lack or deficiency that constrain the use of this right. In a situation of war or social conflict, for example, citizenship is violated. Some behaviours – even in a relatively peaceful society – seem to ignore the balance between the individual and the community, or the interrelation between rights and responsibilities.
This training is useful for everyone, including trainers of various publics, teachers and staff of administrations and associations working with groups of all ages and people from abroad.
