[Extract] Education for this new century will be based on visions of how people can live their lives, of the kinds of communities they will inhabit, and the kinds of relationships they will have with each other. These visions are currently being rethought as a result of major economic, political and cultural changes, subsumed in the concept of globalization, and through notions of the roles and entitlements which people will experience, captured in the idea of citizenship. This paper considers the implications for citizenship in the processes of globalization, and, consequently, the imperatives for curriculum in education for citizenship. It concludes by raising important questions for policy and research, which arise from the new contexts for citizenship created by globalization.
