Enacting Equitable Global Citizenship Education in Schools: Lessons from Dialogue between Research and Practice

Shona McIntosh (Editor), Sarah Lillo Kang (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This unique volume explores efforts to cultivate engaged global citizens in primary and secondary schools. Recognizing the significance of diverse perspectives of global citizenship educators, the text brings together 36 primary/secondary educators, academics, and alumni from six continents. It purposefully dismantles practitioner-academic divides and geographic silos by assembling dozens of voices that rarely speak to each other to discuss similar critical themes. Contributors critically examine the practices of global citizenship, the intentional efforts of educators, the broader contexts of these practices, and also students’ perceived needs relating to global citizenship education. Through the diverse lenses of highly qualified contributors from around the world readers are given many opportunities to both critically explore their own practices and learn from the efforts of other enthusiastic educators. The aim is to bring together voices across divides and, in so doing, prompt reassessment of ongoing practices. While all sections are intentionally critical, the volume ultimately offers hope for educators and scholars and communicates a passion for bringing engaged global citizenship into primary and secondary settings.
