Cosmopolitan Research and Public Thinking: Putting Oneself to the Test of Reality
Hodgson, Naomi
Ethics and Education, v8 n3 p263-275 2013
This paper returns to the theme of the academic turn to cosmopolitanism as a response to the challenges of globalisation, conflict, inequality and diversity discussed here previously. The discussion of cosmopolitanism here refers to the context of current policy relating to research and what it means to be a researcher in the European Union today or, as current policy frames it, "the Innovation Union". The understanding of the researcher found in current policy relates closely to the particular understanding of citizenship promoted in Europe today, consisting in active participation, mobility, adaptability and innovation, that is permanent learning for permanent adaptation to our current conditions. This understanding of citizenship and of research works in the name of democracy, community and their sustainability; and respect for diversity and equality and intercultural dialogue are important facets.
