About this book

This state-of-the-art, comprehensive Handbook is the first of its kind to fully explore the interconnections between social justice and education for citizenship on an international scale. 

Various educational policies and practices are predicated on notions of social justice, yet each of these are explicitly or implicitly shaped by, and in turn themselves shape, particular notions of citizenship/education for citizenship. Showcasing current research and theories from a diverse range of perspectives and including chapters from internationally renowned scholars, this Handbook seeks to examine the philosophical, psychological, social, political, and cultural backgrounds, factors and contexts that are constitutive of contemporary research on education for citizenship and social justice and aims to analyse the transformative role of education regarding social justice issues. Split into two sections, the first contains chapters that explore central issues relating to social justice and their interconnections to education for citizenship whilst the second contains chapters that explore issues of education for citizenship and social justice within the contexts of particular nations from around the world.
Global in its perspective and definitive in content, this one-stop volume will be an indispensable reference resource for a wide range of academics, students and researchers in the fields of Education, Sociology, Social Policy, Citizenship Studies and Political Science.

Reviews

“This comprehensive, timely and much-needed book provides critical discussion of ‘Citizenship and Social Justice’ through a focus on inclusivity and how complex perspectives and identities inter-relate in significant ways. The views on how citizenship can be framed, experienced and disrupted through the lens of Indigenous Peoples, refugees and other marginalised groups provide fresh insights at a critical time for the field. The diverse country case studies and explorations of connections between race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and citizenship are essential reading for those in working in education and related fields.” (Associate Professor Libby Tudball, Monash University)

“This international collaborative Handbook offers the best of contemporary thinking and writing concerning the interconnections between education for citizenship and social justice in relation to schooling and young people. The editors and contributin

g authors have done an exceptional job of capturing a wide range of themes, perspectives, and country-based examples while at the same time interrogating the intricate interplay of research, policy, and curricular practice in schooling contexts. This work is a very important addition to citizenship education literature and valuable reading for those educators committed to continuing the complex and multi-layered conversation that is characteristic of deep educational improvement.” (Mark Evans, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto, Canada)
