Competences for Democratic Culture

The project Competences for Democratic Culture involves the development of a reference framework and descriptors inspired by, but not a copy of the CEFR. For that the teachers’ responses to selections of descriptors via an online questionnaire are essential. It takes about 45 minutes to fill in a questionnaire. The questionnaire is available in Spanish and we are willing to have your feedback from Spain. 

This project is among the Council of Europe’s priorities and is included in the Committee of Ministers’ Action Plan on The fight against violent extremism and radicalisation leading to terrorism. It is also supported by the Steering Committee for Educational Policy and Practice.

The questionnaires are available via the webpage we have set up: or directly at

Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated! With many thanks and best wishes.
