The securitization of civic education and schooling is currently a major policy focus in the context of securitization, of democratic transformations and radicalization. In this issue of JSSE, we explore the state of the governance of security in schools, the technologies and justifications employed in security enactment, and the implications of this for young people and pedagogues in contemporary democracies and societies. The articles in this issue draw on a range of theoretical and empirical approaches to shed light on the challenges of a democratic civic education that does not succumb to the temptations of the securitization claim.
