EU Grundtvig Project




 DARE Publications

The publication strategy of DARE is based on diverse pillars.

As a European network we aim to steadily involve a broad target group in the communication process to create a sense of European citizenship based on understanding and respect for human rights and democracy, and encouraging tolerance and respect for other peoples and cultures in line with the goals of the lifelong learning programme.

As a network of educative NGOs the focus is mainly set on the exchange of knowledge in issues relevant for educational purposes.

 DARE Blue Lines  is a series of print journals (also for download). It links research and educational practice in Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights and sets a thematic focus on relevant themes for adult learning.

The DARE Blue Lines in this regard is a unique dissemination and discussion instrument for projects and research from all over Europe.

Between 2008 and 2010 nine issues of the DARE Blue Lines were released by the DARE network, compiling contributions from almost 100 authors. All DARE Blue Lines compilations are free of charge and can be downloaded for further use.

 eDARE  newsletters inform more than 600 subscribers from all over Europe regularly on current developments in EDC/HRE on both national and European level. It is a platform for dissemination of calls, project results, best practises, funding opportunities and other relevant information in the field.

In the period covered by the EU Grundtvig funding 14 issues of eDARE were published reporting on 157 diverse issues connected to Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights (see eDARE Archive). Since Mid of 2009 e-DARE is further connected to the DARE Blog.

 The DARE Blog  (http://dare-network.blogspot.com) facilitates an ongoing exchange of expertise on the various levels of EDC/HRE work in Europe. It is so far the only resource on the web that contains up-to-date-information on all ongoing activities in relevant spheres for EDC/HRE in adult learning: research, NGO practice, developments on the political level (EU and member states).

Integrated into the DARE website www.dare-network.eu the Blog aims to be a visual platform for organisations to collaborate, exchange knowledge and practice, develop further cooperation and support NGOs and adult educators with a European dimension in their work.

Since its launch on March 20, 2008 the Blog has had 19.637 visitors (March 20, 2010). DARE's website www.dare-network.eu attracts on average more than 1.000 visitors and 6.000 hits monthly.

Other publication activities remain to the work of the project partners in their respective national, regional, local environment – be it in form of oral dissemination on the workplace, be it in form of articles in relevant journals etc.
