Literature Review

Written by Dr. Lynette Shultz and Shelane Jorgenson

The literature review summarizes key policies, programs and theories of global citizenship education within the context of post secondary institutions. It is apparent that educating for global citizenship has become a shared goal of educators and educational institutions who are interested in expanding their own and their students’ understanding of what it means to enact citizenship in the twenty-first century. This goal is, however, complicated by the multitude of definitions and conceptualizations that are contested and in significant tension with one another.
