Abstract :
[en] The Service de didactique des sciences sociales de l’Université de Liège coordinates and leads seminars on "citizenship" for more than ten years for last year students aged (or close to being) 18, the threshold of majority. Depending on the institution, the seminars are taken by 20 up to 180 students. They cover 3 or 5 days of activities where the political and legal structures of the Belgian State are discussed in class as well as the mechanisms of the electoral system. Students are asked to solve an issue that can emerge in the real live, enabling them to discover the institutions involved in that matter (social or welfare legislation).
