Global Citizenship Education and Teacher Education brings together scholars and practitioners from all continents to explore the role of teacher education in formulating a practice of citizenship that has a global scope and is guided by critical and emancipatory approaches.

By considering educational responses to global challenges —such as global warming, rising levels of inequalities, intensification of armed conflicts, growing streams of international migration, and the impact of neoliberal policies—this book provides valuable analyses for researchers, teacher educators, and educators. The volume examines historical and conceptual issues relating to the incorporation of global citizenship education in teacher education, and presents examples from across the world that showcase main trends in research and practice from across the world.

This book is of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and libraries in the fields of citizenship education, global education, teacher education, international and comparative education, and education policy and politics.

About the Series

Critical Global Citizenship Education

Globalization and the Politics of Equity and Inclusion

This series seeks to understand how globalization has affected educational reform in K–12 and higher education systems in many countries in Latin America, North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, but also understand the promise and prospects of global citizenship education as part of the post 2015 development goals set by the United Nations.

The particular focus of the series is on teacher perceptions of how globalization has influenced citizenship education, and to what extent global citizenship education can be implemented in classrooms. This will include critical analysis of changing student demographics and behavior, administration, funding, pedagogy and curriculum, testing and accountability, and interactions of schools with commerce and the community. Starting with the everyday experiences and knowledge of participants in educational processes, we will offer insights that can then be generalized above the level of the research subjects and inform deeper understanding of how globalization is affecting teachers and students in 21st century classrooms.
