Depaepe, Marc; Lembagusala Kikumbi, Annette – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Generally speaking, colonial education in Congo did not engender a very great widening of consciousness among the local population.

The UK's 2016 decision to exit the European Union and the discussion surrounding it indicate that public understanding of British identity has important consequences, one way or another.
