Drawing on critical pedagogy, post-colonial analysis, hermeneutic interpretation, and reconceptualist curriculum frameworks, the twenty chapters in this edited collection address, from interrelated perspectives, a gap in the scholarly literature on the theory, practice, and policy of global citizenship and global citizenship education. The book provides readers with analyses and interpretations of the existing state of global citizenship education in post-secondary institutions, and stimulates discussion about the field at a time when there is an intense debate about the current drive to "internationalize" tertiary education and the role global citizenship education should play in that process. International and interdisciplinary in its examination of post-secondary global citizenship education, the book will be useful in courses that focus on policy formation, curriculum development and theorizing in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Global citizenship has become a buzzword in many institutions of higher education and yet, ironically, the concept is rarely subject to the rigours of scholarship one expects to find in the academy. This timely and important collection asks critical questions about what kinds of global citizenship post-secondary institutions can, and should, develop - and to what degree these efforts contribute to a more just, equitable, and non-violent world. Such questions are key to determining the role and purpose of higher education in shaping the future." (Graham Pike, Dean of International Education, Vancouver Island University)
