Panel Global Citizenship Education? Why and for whom? Critical Perspectives on Global Citizenship Education in a Globalized World

Curated by Meghan McHaney, Bridge 47, UK & Felisa Tibbits, Columbia and Utrecht Universities, USA/ The Netherlands

Felisa Tibbits and Megan McHaney and  other speakers (tbc) will reflect critically on the definitions of and vision for global citizenship education (GCE), incorporating perspectives from the Global North and Global South, as well as from relative wealth and deprivation within national contexts. What are the aspirations and implications for global citizenship education taking place within the contours of globalization? What are the hidden values, privilege and practicalities behind notions of student engagement and transformative learning? We will explore these questions with reference to the formal and non-formal education sectors.
