Global Citizenship Education in Historical and Critical Perspectives (GLOC)

Human rights, international understanding, sustainability and massive flows of information are global challenges in a world where ideas often are in conflict with other goals and priorities in education. By analyzing these challenges from different perspectives and discuss the implementation of global citizenship in education, this node will contribute to an up-to-date understanding of what education may be in theory and practice in a global world. The node will be composed of researchers with different backgrounds and expertise on issues concerning the environment, minority rights, civil defense, globalization, education policy and democracy. PhD students and master students are welcome to seminars and workshops.
