Mrs Silvia Edling

Silvia Edling is a Doctoral Student at the Department of Teacher Education, Uppsala University. She earlier received her degree of Bachelor of Arts and Degree of Master Education at the same University. Her interest lies in the field of Democracy and Education where she strives to explore how young people in different ages and settings discursively construct images of proper behaviour towards others. The need for schools to foster good democratic spirit into the students is highly accentuated in western countries and is believed to be achieved through every individual's freely chosen responsibility for others (democratic responses towards others). Edling is part of a research group SIDES located at Mälardalens högskola in Eskilstuna, and in a research project: Learning Democracy, edited by Carl-Anders Säfström.
