Abstract [en]

This article focuses on immigrant courses and the way teachers talk about the goals and content of courses containing segments of citizenship education. The context is two Swedish folk high schools. These are schools in the non-formal education system called popular education. The results show that the citizen education, which is present in Sweden, can be described and understood as social pedagogical activities. The teaching has strong elements of adaptation, but there are also more mobilizing democratic ideas. The interpretation is that most of the teachers have the intention to be democratic and to work with mobilization, but in their efforts they sometimes turn to being adaptive.
