Martyn Barrett

Martyn Barrett’s work focuses on the development of intercultural, democratic and global competence; young people’s political and civic engagement, active participation and global citizenship; the development of national and ethnic identifications, prejudice, stereotyping and intergroup attitudes; and young people’s ethnic, national and political enculturation. He has worked as an expert for the Council of Europe on the development of intercultural and democratic competence since 2006, and led a Council of Europe flagship project entitled “Competences for Democratic Culture” from 2013-2018. He helped to develop the conceptual framework and assessments of global competence for use in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2018. One of his most recent books is Youth Civic and Political Engagement (2019, Routledge).
