Title NGOs and Higher Education:Working together for Citizenship Education and the Development of Identities
Author(s) Hartsmar, Nanny ; Aksit, Necmi ; Moraeus, Lisa

English abstract
These guidelines are written to inspire and offer guidance on how Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and other social institutions can work with Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in promoting citizenship education. We start with some definitions of what is meant by an NGO, and then compare the role of HEIs with NGOs in society, suggesting what they have in common. One of the missions of both NGOs and HEIs is to work towards the common goal of service to society. Both may also provide some impetus for lifelong learning. We suggest areas for cooperation, and give examples of good practice of this at national and local levels (Sweden and Turkey).
