Ethics and citizenship education has become the focus of considerable debate since the construction of the European Higher Education Area. That this should be so is interesting, as it is a type of education that forms part of the educational mission of the university, as its history plainly demonstrates. Ethics and citizenship education cannot be analyzed solely in terms of its pedagogical requirements, the competences that it seeks to develop, or the type of students and professionals that the world needs today. Its success also requires our exploring what university teachers understand by this type of education, the situation it currently finds itself in, and how students perceive such an education. This paper presents a case study conducted among university teachers of education, philosophy and the humanities at several European institutions.
