The present study focuses on the role of global citizenship education in shaping students’ self-understandings at elite schools in six countries: Australia, Chile, Denmark, Ghana, Jordan, and Taiwan. In January 2018, Weston Muench made a podcast that outlines the purpose and history of the project:

Guiding Questions

  1. How is global citizenship defined within elite schools?
  2. What lessons are students learning about global citizenship and how are these lessons shaping their understandings of self, others, and the world around them?
  3. How are increasing global connections and imaginations impacting students’ self-understandings, and what roles do elite schools play in facilitating and mediating these influences?
