(Global) Citizenship Education



Miguel Prata Gomes  


Pascale Mompoint-Gallard

Please send proposals to Miguel Prata Gomes


Rapid changes relating to the globalisation of the economy, environmental issues, sustainability and social-cultural problems will undeniably be the most serious challenges confronting humanity in the coming years.

How serious is the international community (and education systems) about achieving some measure of global environmental sustainability and socially sustainable development? How will future citizens, specialists, educators and employees acquire values, attitudes, knowledge and skills to creatively solve problems knowing that traditional schooling doesn’t address such issues.

Given that (global) citizenship education provides an educational path to address cultural diversity, social inequality, respect for the environment and for human rights, we invite papers that focus on educational practices and visions of education that include a plan to address these and related issues: active citizenship as a practice of democracy, autonomy and open-mindedness through discussion, critical thinking, active citizenship and respect in the context of an endangered planet.

Especially papers linking intercultural/multicultural education and respect for the environment/planet are welcome. This connection has rarely been made but is a necessary way forward.



For each of these strands, we are accepting proposals in the following categories:

  • Papers on concluded or ongoing research in intercultural education and related fields
  • Theoretical papers
  • Posters, particularly on intercultural educational experiences and/or pilot-projects
  • Book and audio/video presentations, particularly on didactical material relating to intercultural education and related fields
  • Art objects, theater and circus performances, films, etc.
  • Inspiring short workshops
  • Adaptive e-learning tools

For each of these categories, we are currently asking for abstracts, which should be sent to the respective strand chairs (see above).


  • The abstract should be between 200 and 400 words in length
  • Abstracts are to be submitted in English
  • The abstract has to specify the name, institutional affiliation and email address of the author(s) as well as the strand to which it is submitted.
  • Please specify also the equipment required for your presentation (PC, beamer, DVD player, Internet access, etc.).
Finally, you are asked to express your commitment to submit a complete version of your presentation once your abstract has been accepted


All abstracts should be sent by Sept. 1, 2019 directly to the Strand Chair(s). Also indicate a preference of day you would like to present.

We cannot guarantee that your presentation can happen on that day., but we will try our best.
Note that the presentations will take place within blocks of 90 minutes. We will attempt to keep the number of presentations to 4 per block, or less. This implies 15 minute presentations plus Q and A. Some strands will utilize a more dynamic World Cafe format at certain times, which will allow for longer presentations. This is at the discretion of the strand chairs.
Also note that we can accept  a maximum of 3 authors per paper and that one of those three authors has to attend the conference. If there are more than 3 authors, two authors need to attend and pay conference fees.
