Civic Responsibility and Human Rights Education: A Pan-Educational Alliance for Social Justice
Osanloo, Azadeh F.
Intercultural Education, v20 n2 p151-159 Apr 2009
Educating global citizens to have knowledge of world political and economic systems and conditions is imperative as the notion of the "citizen" is constantly evolving. This type of civic education needs to involve critical thinking skills that are pan-educational and allow for cross-cultural discussion that span all public spheres and encourage empathetic and socially just minded discourses. As such, there are universal and national elements that should be incorporated in all systems of civically responsible education. One such element is human rights education (HRE).
