“Changes induced by new technologies, and the unprecedented mobility of people, goods and capital across the globe, are creating a world that contains a set of characteristics without parallel in human history. A whole new vocabulary is needed to explain this different world.
Terms such as ‘cosmopolitanism’, ‘global citizenship’ and ‘global competence’ are often used in this context to explain this new reality. Similarly, it is also often argued that the new globalised conditions require our future generations to possess different skills in order to successfully negotiate the opportunities and challenges brought about by globalisation.
In this discussion paper I provide an overview of these concepts as they pertain to the higher education sector. In particular, I argue that an inclusive ethical and moral framework should be seen as the foundation for how we think of global competencies and how we operationalise them in practice.”
