This new resource is published by DICE and edited by Dr Brighid Golden. Global Citizenship Education: Curious Teachers, Critical Classrooms is designed to support educators pursuing global citizenship education.

The book comprises over 40 chapters, which explore a range of issues related to justice, including several sections on appropriate teaching methodologies for exploring these topics in the classroom.

Financial Justice Ireland’s Vicky Donnelly has also co-authored sections of this book including chapters on structural inequality with Adedotun Adekeye, along with two chapters on inclusivity and intercultural education authored with Ryma Halfaoui, and a chapter emphasising the need for a rights-based, justice approach to the root causes of global inequalities, written with Sharon Murphy.

At the launch, Dr Golden outlined her vision for the book and its uses: “My hope is that this book can act as a core text for teacher educators promoting global citizenship education, acting as a one stop shop for both conceptual and practical knowledge necessary to get started in the field. My dream for the teachers who will read and use this book is that you be curious about the world around you, be critical in your approaches to education, and facilitate both curiosity and criticality unapologetically and unendingly in your education spaces.”
