The Role of Regional Studies in the Development of Regional Consciousness and Civic Education (Taking Local Communities of Northwest Russia as an Example)

The project aimed to examine how regional studies can influence the identity of school children in district centres of Northwest Russia. Special attention was paid to civic education problems and their connection to regional studies. Within the project, all agents involved in regional studies were interviewed and a discursive analysis of textbooks was carried out.
