Traditional forms of citizenship education, focused on knowledge of formal institutions and processes of civic life, are increasingly challenged by global imperatives such as mass migration of peoples and the need for international cooperation around issues such as environmental, economic and social issues. It is imperative that educators address ways in which global interaction and global concerns have affected citizenship education at the school, tertiary and community level.
This special issue requests paper submissions that address themes such as:
- national identity and citizenship education in a globalised world
- personal/individual identity and citizenship education in a globalised world
- human rights education, peace education, sustainable futures education, conflict resolution education and social justice education and their relationship to citizenship education
- the role of community groups in promoting citizenship education
- the influence of media and ICT accessibility in developing and changing citizenship education
