Centre Director Professor James Arthur and Deputy Director Tom Harrison publish article Exploring good character and citizenship in England in the Asia Pacific Journal of Education.
Citizenship, character and the virtues that constitute both are increasingly concerns of public policy in the UK. This article understands character to encompass the morally valuable, reason-response and education part of personality, and understands virtues as states of character concerned with praiseworthy feelings and conduct in specific spheres of human life. We adopt a broad and permissive view of these terns and explore linkages together with how our research shows that good citizenship requires good people of character.
