30 SES 17 A, Research on Global (Citizenship) Education
This paper explores the role of non-governmental organization (NGO) in promoting, disseminating and implementing global citizenship education (GCE) practice and policy in school curricula. Based on a comparative policy analysis carried out in the European context, the political role of NGOs is explored, stressing their domains of commitments and achievements – theory, practice and policy. Results show that NGOs play a crucial political role in widening the decision-making basis and bringing critical voices from below into the global political arena. Finally, after having stressed some critical issues and tensions with other critical agents, the paper concludes with some remarks summarizing the role that NGOs can play in a multilayered political sphere in promoting GCE in formal education and school reform.
