What name are we? Global citizenship education for whom? Response to Madeleine Arnot.
2010 (English)In: Values, religions and education in changing societies / [ed] Karin Sporre & Jan Mannberg, Springer, 2010, 67-74 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this chapter aspects on a global citizenship education are discussed against the background of postcolonial relationships between North and South. This raises questions concerning the “situatedness” of us as knowers and how we position ourselves in North and South. I argue that the relationship to the global is different and varies, meaning that it matters where we are situated when discussing global citizenship education. When discussing this I draw on the critical feminist discussion on epistemology, my own praxis of having initiated and led student and teacher exchanges, and actively participated in research cooperation between Sweden and South Africa. Further, having a background in ethics and in feminist theology I reflect over resources for an empowering ethics within global citizenship education.
