How and what to educate on values in times of pluralism and polarisation?

Our research project "Growing up radical? The role of educational institutions in guiding young people's worldview construction" is interested in the elements influencing children and young people's value learning and worldview development trajectories. The aim of our research group is to bring new insights and methodological openings into the fields of resilience, societal polarization, and prevention of radicalization by approaching the topic from the perspective of young people, as well as the educational institutions in which their growth and development is to a large extent embedded. Our international research group includes members from the University of Helsinki (FIN), Stockholm University (SWE), and the University of Oxford (UK).
