History education in Europe. Ten years of co-operation between the Russian Federation and the Council of Europe (2006)

This publication analyses the experience and results achieved over ten years of co-operation between the Council of Europe and the Russian Federation in history teaching in schools.

During a decade of collaboration, the Council of Europe and the Russian Federation established a solid partnership at all levels: the Federal Ministry of Education and Science and regional administrations, non-governmental organisations, a wide audience of history teachers and, more importantly, their pupils who were involved in the discussions on the most significant issues of present-day history teaching. Some of the activities organised in the Russian Federation during this period involved representatives from other international organisations: long-term partners of the Council of Europe, such as UNESCO, the Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (Germany), as well as EUROCLIO, a nongovernmental European organisation of history educators.
