This project provides an important opportunity for history education in Romania. The transition of Romania into developing into a fully and stable democratic society is still in full swing. Existing myths and stereotypes in history and history education play an important role in the images which Romanian people have of their country, their political system, the peoples and countries which are surrounding them and different groups in the population of their own country.
This project contributes to the development of history education into a subject which supports democracy, tolerance and participating and responsible citizenship. The project tackles the problem of how to enforce history and citizenship education in present-day Romania in order to foster democracy and Europeanism and prepare the young people to become active citizenship in a democratic society.
