Education is a societal matter and takes place in relation to societal changes. Today, in many countries, it has to grapple with diversity and differences brought about by migration and changes in gender relations. Questions of values, human rights and the role of religions are raised. In this book scholars from Sweden, Norway, Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Namibia and South Africa discuss the issues above. Similarities as well as differences are highlighted. The varied contributors engage in a North-South dialogue. Among the questions addressed are: Can the Scandinavian countries be understood as more religious than their up-to-date, seemingly secularist reputation has led us to believe? How do some European, Muslim, Christian and secular pupils understand the religious education they receive? Could a global citizenship education, with a gendered understanding as an integral part, be accomplished? ‘Diversity’ and ‘social justice’: what does it take to theoretically integrate these two crucial parameters in education, in South Africa, and in Sweden? The role of religious and values education under changing circumstances is explored through the diverse contributions, that also challenge the hegemony of a Western understanding of democracy, among other values. The purpose of this is to assess what could now constitute global educational common ground.

The Millennium Development Goals aim to achieve basic education for all by 2015. But can such global agendas address national and local gender inequalities and will they empower women through education? This thought-provoking book offers an opportunity to engage critically with existing and emergent conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches to this global debate. It is divided into three sections that: reconceptualise the definitions of gender equality used by various social scientific disciplines, international organisations and policy makers; illustrate the methodologies used to collect the voices of young men and women and their teachers telling stories of their success in lifting the burdens of poverty and negotiating traditional gender relations; trace the impact of global gender agendas on national education policies, such as citizenship education, poverty reduction strategies, and feminist activism around adult women’s learning. Gender Education and Equality in a Global Context is an invaluable introduction to the range of conceptual frameworks and innovative research methods that address issues of gender education and development.

Len Barton’s intellectual and practical contribution to the sociology of disability and education is highly significant and widely known. The leading scholars in this collection, including his long term collaborators, offer both a celebration and a reassessment of this contribution, addressing the challenge that the social model of disability has presented to dominant medicalised concepts, categories and practices, and their power to define the identity and the lives of others. At the same time the authors build upon some of the key themes that are woven through Len Barton’s work, such as his call for a ‘politics of hope’. This collection explores a wide range of topics, including: difference as a field of political struggle the relationship of disability studies, disabled people and their struggle for inclusion radical activism: organic intellectuals and the disability movement discrimination, exclusion and effective change inclusive education the ‘politics of hope’, resilience and transformative actions universal pedagogy, human rights and citizenship debates. The Sociology of Disability and Inclusive Education highlights Len Barton’s humane vision of academic work, of the nature of an inclusive and non-discriminatory society, of the role of an education system which addresses the rights, and potential of all participants. It indicates how such a society could be achieved through the principles of social inclusion, human rights, equity and social justice. This book was originally published as a special issue of the British Journal of Sociology of Education.

Refugees are physically and symbolically 'out of place', their position forcing receiving states to address issues of rights and moral obligations. This book is concerned with asylum-seeking and refugee children in the UK whose presence represents a litmus test of state commitment to human rights, equality and justice for all children.

Focusing on citizenship means thinking about the relationships between individuals and the states in which they live. What difference does having citizenship rights mean for peoplee(tm)s lives? Are structures of governance efficient, and responsive to peoplee(tm)s needs? This collection of articles examines ways in which citizenship is denied, and argues that citizenship can be used to demand and advance human rights. Women often find themselves excluded from full citizenship by legal systems which leave men to look after the interests of their female dependants. But women need recognition as citizens in their own right, to protect them from exploitation and abuse. People from marginalized communities also often find that the state fails to respond to their needs and interests. Finally, migrants e" a growing group of women and men in our global economy e" live precariously as aliens in states which do not acknowledge their claims to basic security and services. Topics here include the tension between cultural sensitivity and universal concepts of rights; reinterpretations of citizenship in communities where the state has failed to guarantee political or economic rights; and projects that are helping to advance active citizenship by increasing peoplee(tm)s voice in decisionmaking.

Local Citizenship in the Global Arena: educating for community participation and change proposes a reconsideration of both citizenship and citizenship education, moving away equally from prevailing ‘global citizenship’ and ‘fundamental British values’ approaches towards a curriculum for education that is essentially about creating cosmopolitan, included and inclusive, politically-engaged citizens of communities local, national and global. Recent events have brought equality, voice and identity into fresh focus. While isolationism is futile, increased access to information about life elsewhere feeds anger at inequalities. Remote politics that ignore local needs for equality, voice and belonging in often bewildering global turmoil, don’t work. Neither do forms of education that restrict their scope to risk-aversion, responsibilising and competition. Viewing education as both problem and solution, Findlow argues in this book that today’s climate of rapid and unpredictable geopolitical and cultural re-scoping requires an approach to citizenship education that both reflects and shapes society, paying attention to relationships between the local and global aspects of political voice, equality and community. Drawing on a range of international examples, she explores the importance and possibilities of a form of education that instead of promoting divisive competition, educates about citizenship in its various forms, and encourages the sorts of open and radical thinking that can help young people cross ideological and physical borders and use their voice in line with their own (and others’) real, long-term interests. Successive chapters develop this argument by critically examining the key elements of citizenship discourses through the interrelated lenses of geopolitical change, nationalism, the competition fetish, critical pedagogy, multiculturalism, protest politics, feminism and ecology, and highlighting ways in which the situationally diverse lived realities of ‘citizenship’ have been mediated by different forms of education. The book draws attention to how we think of education’s place in a world attempting to ride the choppy waters of combined globalisation, localism, anti-state revolt and xenophobia. It will be of key interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of education, political science, philosophy, sociology, social policy, cultural studies and anthropology.
