Global citizenship as a pedagogy of hope

An International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning special feature

The fields of development and global Education and Learning have gained increased profile in recent years. From being an agenda dominated by needs of policy-makers, there has been an expansion of research and literature from academics that address some of the philosophical underpinnings of the field.

The articles in this special issue reviews some of these philosophical underpinnings, from Buddhism and Islam. They demonstrate the need to consider questions of the future and the importance of social justice. These global themes however have to take account of specific local and national cultural contexts . As the 2022 Global Education Declaration states Global Education is education that enables people to reflect critically on the world and their place in it; to open their eyes, hearts and minds to the reality of the world at local and global level.
