About TECE

Investing in comprehensive civic learning is critical for the future health of our democracies as both Germany and the United States face significant challenges: structural racism, right-wing populism, polarization and mistrust of democratic institutions and the media, not to mention a strained transatlantic relationship, all exacerbated further by the COVID-19 pandemic.
