Mannion G, Biesta GJJ, Priestley M & Ross H (2011) The global dimension in education and education for global citizenship: genealogy and critique, Globalisation, Societies and Education, 9 (3-4), pp. 443-456.
Encouraged by transnational organisations, curriculum policy-makers in the UK have called for curricula in schools and higher education to include a global dimension and education for global citizenship that will prepare students for life in a global society and work in a global economy. We argue that this call is rhetorically operating as a ‘nodal point’ in policy discourse a floating signifier that different discourses attempt to cover with meaning. This rhetoric attempts to bring three educational traditions together: environmental education, development education and citizenship education. We explore this new point of arrival and departure and some of the consequences and critiques.
