The IEA Civic Education Study was a two-phase, cross-national study. The main goal was to identify and examine, in a comparative framework, the ways in which young people are prepared to undertake their role as citizens in democracies. About 90.000 14-year-olds as well as 10.000 teachers and 4.000 school principals from 28 countries participated in the first survey in 1999, about 60.000 16/18-year-old students and 2.000 school principals in a second survey in 1999/2000.
