Global Migration, Structural Inclusion, and Citizenship Education Across Nations


Many students from ethnic, racial, linguistic, and religious minority groups have weak identifications with their nation-states because they feel structurally excluded and marginalized within their schools and nations. In this plenary session, researchers from six different nations will describe how citizenship education courses and programs can be reimagined and changed so that they will help students from marginalized ethnic, cultural, racial, linguistic, and religious groups attain a sense of inclusion within their schools and nation-states, political efficacy, and clarified national identities. This session will include an analysis of global migration, diversity, and citizenship education as well as profiles of effective teachers of citizenship education in diverse schools and communities.
