Abstract

Europe is facing major challenges to its democratic future. One aspect of major concern is the impact of globalization on citizenship and inclusivity within Europe. “Fortress Europe” has come under attack as being unrealistic in the 21st century. The 2015 waves of migrants from the Middle East, especially refugees from Syria, have changed forever how European countries will address citizenship. The panel asks a key question - What new ways are best to encourage an understanding and practice of 21st century global citizenship amongst young Europeans? To achieve this the panel will investigate what globalization, citizenship and inclusivity means in a 21st century Europe and how these concepts and practices resonate with young Europeans. It will identify what new forms of school curriculum are needed to address 21st century globalization, citizenship and inclusivity.
