In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Citizenship and Citizenship Education in a Global Age: Politics, Policies, and Practices Global citizenship education in china China. Peter Lang Publishing, This book, as Wing-Wah Law explains p.
The organization of the book makes it easy for the reader to follow the text chronologically and thematically. The historical analysis and case studies in the book speak to three broad themes where Law believes it has a unique contribution to make: Law spells out these themes at considerable length in the introductory chapter in tandem with a concise literature review.
He proceeds to propose a multileveled multidimensional model that consists of four dimensions: Each dimension in [End Page ] this model can intersect with all the others and cover numerous human activities, ranging from civics to economic, political, social, cultural, and environmental areas.
The preferences, choices, and identifications of citizens depend on their needs and capacities for involvement on global, national, local, and personal-social levels. On the subject of globalization, Law concurs with theorists who no longer take the nation-state to be the exclusive source of legitimacy for political activity.
He identifies three models of global citizenship education. The first is geared toward preparing young people for life and work under globalized conditions. The second is characterized by multiculturalism or cosmopolitanism in that it is intended to enable the young to adapt to increasingly diverse communities and an increasingly interdependent world.
The third is a multidimensional framework that encompasses personal, social, spatial, and temporal dimensions. His own multileveled multidimensional model combines the second and third.
When exploring the local dimension of this model, Law highlights, in particular, the new roles and functions of the city in global competition and nation-building and in fostering local identities and promoting national citizenship. In chapter 6, he analyzes in detail the dynamic and complex formation of multileveled identities and the effects of nation building and globalization on various domains of citizenship among school students in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
Much depends on the contents and emphases in the educational curricula for multileveled citizenship in response to the demands for education and the contexts of citizenship and civic education. This conclusion is hard to dispute.
The analysis of citizenship and citizenship education in Shanghai and Hong Kong is followed by a case study of international events, which are city-based and, therefore, closely related to the former. The latter centers on two questions that Law believes have not been answered satisfactorily in the literature on the subject.
One is how and why the Chinese state used the events for political socialization and as large-scale projects of multileveled-multidimensional citizenship education.Global citizenship education is becoming an important component in citizenship education in many countries.
