British Journal of Educational Studies: Special issue on Global Citizenship.

The British Journal of Educational Studies is calling for submissions for a special issue entitled "Global citizenship education in the era of migration, conflict and globalisation". 

"In an era of intensive transnational migration – from the most highly resourced groups to those fleeing violence and poverty – classrooms have become more heterogenic and multinational, which in itself creates important possibilities but also challenges for the teaching and learning of ‘global citizenship’. This Special Issue (SI) of British Journal of Educational Studies will therefore concentrate on the nexus between immigration, identity, and global citizenship education, in an effort to highlight how the transnational flow of people in the global age changes the needs of learners both from immigrant and local backgrounds, and urges practitioners and scholars to re-think and re-frame the concept of citizenship and the way citizenship education is taught."

The Editors are looking for contributions that seek to critically examine and theorise:

  • GCE in conflict-ridden societies
  • GCE policies and practices especially aimed at refugee and migrant students (within primary and secondary education)
  • The role played by teachers, parents, NGOs and other actors in shaping the teaching and learning processes with regards to GCE in migration contexts
  • The role of, and use of innovative pedagogy in GCE with respect to engagement of marginalised populations

Deadline (500-word extended abstract): 30th January 2018
