Beschreibung

In this short introduction to the idea of global citizenship, Nigel Dower examines the arguments from ethical, social and political theory for and against the view that we are global citizens. The discussion is set in its historical context but the main emphasis is on the idea of global citizenship as a cultural process, and its application in the modern world. The book is divided into three parts -- the Framework, which explores the historical context and the ethical and institutional aspects of the concept of global citizenship; Applications, covering key areas of current global concern, including the environment, aid and poverty elimination, human rights, peace, and global governance; and Theoretical Issues, which explores the arguments for and against global citizenship in more depth. The book includes chapters on the environment, aid and poverty, human rights, peace, and global governance, as well as a chapter placing issues surrounding September 11th in the context of global citizenship. It also covers the role of the UN; anti-globalization campaigns (e.g. in Genoa); corporate global citizenship; Oxfam; Amnesty International; and Jubilee 2000.

Nigel Dower's immensely readable and stimulating book makes a unique contribution to the growing debate on the theory and practice of global citizenship. He challenges us to critically reassess what global citizenship means and why a clear understanding of it is so important in our increasingly globalised society. Everyone with an active commitment to a more just and sustainable world should read it. The concept of global citizenship has become one of the most important ideas of our time. In this well crafted introduction, Nigel Dower lays out the core issues and challenges. He steers us clearly through the maze of debates and lays out the ground that we all need to engage with as a result of living in a more global age. -- Professor David Held, LSE A clearly written, easily accessible and morally sensitive account of the nature, grounds and institutional implications of the spirit of global citizenship that is essential in our increasingly interdependent world. -- Professor Bhikhu Parekh, University of Hull Dower writes with extraordinary clarity, fairly engages a wide range of objections to his views, and stimulates the students' own thinking on the issues that Dower identifies and tries to resolve.
