Nashwa Moheyeldine is a Professional Development Specialist at Educate - Me , an Egyptian non-profit foundation that aims to redefine local education through serving underprivileged children and providing public schools teachers with the suitable professional development.
In an attempt to explore the future transformation to a just, democratic society, her recent research explores citizenship education at four schools of various educational systems (public, experimental, private, and international schools). Her work also evaluates the notions of citizenship constructed by students at these schools, and the effects of external factors of political socialization including parents, peers, social media, and revolution. This research highlights the critical consciousness of students, the extent to which schools empower and expose students to their realities, and obstacles to a democratic citizenship education.

Anatoli Rapoport is an Associate Professor at Purdue University. He is interested in citizenship education, particularly in how we teach (or rather, should teach) about global citizenship and other forms of supranational citizenship. How do ideologies and local cultures impact the development of global citizenship? How can we balance the national and the global in curricula? How do different education agents and stakeholders conceptualize supranational forms of citizenship? He has lived and worked in the former Soviet Union and when possible, incorporates his knowledge of education environments of Eastern and Central European countries into his research.
