A Retrospective and Critical View of Turkish Citizenship Education

Chapter
Part of the Wiener Beiträge zur Islamforschung book series (WSI)

Abstract

An ideological intent has long been attributed to citizenship and citizenship education in Turkey (Çayır & Gürkaynak, 2007; Çayır, 2011; Koçal, 2012). Therefore, related concepts should be evaluated in their historical and cultural context in order to understand Turkish citizenship and citizenship education: In the ancient tradition of Turkey, the notion of Homeland had an identity associated with sacred connotations. Traditionally, the notion of the state such as the eternal state[in Turkish, devlet-i ebed-müddet] dominated individual and collective consciousness. In the view of the state regarding society, the understanding “keep society alive to make the state live” was adopted as a principle; in other words, there existed a spiritual-oral contract between the state and society for mutual preservation.
