Appeared in Choice on 2003-07-01:
This short and highly idealistic book focuses on global citizenship and the role of education in fostering it. The concepts underlying the book include global interdependence, the values associated with cross-cultural understanding, and a commitment to peace and multiculturalism. The authors build on the work of UNESCO and emerging policies in the European Union relating to education and global citizenship. Most of the volume consists of case studies of Denmark, England, Ireland, and the Netherlands concerning national policies and current practices to foster global citizenship in the schools. This book is aimed at teachers and other education personnel and will mainly interest those concerned with developing a global outlook in the schools. While the book focuses exclusively on Europe, the themes have universal relevance. The modest length of the book means that there is only modest depth to the discussions. ^BSumming Up: Optional.

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This study examines the institutional support provided in educating for global citizenship. It looks at the contradictions students and teachers face when they compare what is learned in school with the messages from politicians and the media.
Main Description
Teachers have the challenge of teaching for equity, justice and solidarity in plural and fast-changing societies where their students are well aware of inequality and injustice. How much does government policy encourage understanding of global interdependence and skills for democratic participation? How can schools integrate issues of citizenship, human rights and multiculturalism and what support do they receive? Drawing on case studies from England, Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands, this book examines the institutional support provided in educating for global citizenship. It looks at the contradictions students and their teachers face when they compare what is learned in school with the messages from politicians and the media about refugees and asylum seekers, young people's rights, environmental issues and the impact of globalization. Intended for teachers, student teachers and teacher educators developing new programs of citizenship education, the book is a core text for professional development courses in citizenship education.
