If citizenship education supplied knowledge and promotes participation among structurally disadvantaged groups, it could help them raise their voices in a public discussion and defend their interests as citizens. Can and should citizenship educators focus more clearly on working with disadvantaged groups? How can it provide spaces where inequalities can be studied, debated and comprehended? What kind of knowledge, critical reflection and public support are needed for such an engagement to be successful?
