Set out in 3 volumes, the Reference Framework of Competences for Democratic Culture (RFCDC) aims to equip young people with the competences for taking action to defend and promote human rights, democracy and the rule of law, for participating effectively in a culture of democracy and for living peacefully together in culturally diverse societies.
Volume two of the RFCDC lists the descriptors of the 20 competences for democratic culture. These help educators to identify learning outcomes, reach a level of proficiency after a period of learning and pinpoint areas for further development.
The 135 key descriptors, categorised into “Values”, “Attitudes”, “Skills” and “Knowledge and critical understanding”, have now been translated into Japanese thanks to the initiative of the Nagoya University of Foreign Studies.
