“This paper provides a critical analysis of current knowledge about the conditions, concerns and practices of young people in terms of global connectedness and global responsibility. It suggests that new transition patterns, economic and cultural globalisation and emergent forms of civic engagement are changing opportunities for global citizenship for youth today.
It indicates that civics and citizenship education in schools and organisations can better capitalise on these developments and that existent curricula and programs are in need of more comprehensive review and evaluation.
It outlines the evidence base regarding young people’s attitudes and practices in relation to global issues, identifies key principles of effective global citizenship education initiatives and proposes areas of priority research to be undertaken to inform future policy and practice. In conclusion it poses four critical issues for further consideration.”
