Policy imperatives around mobility encourage students to take up international experiences to increase their marketability. These imperatives are framed in narrow ways by neoliberal metanarratives of globalization. As a result, peripheral mobility experiences are often positioned as a key tool in internationalization and developing global citizenship. This individualized notion of the global citizen is counter to the qualities of critical global citizenship such as resilience, empathy, understanding one’s place in the world, and an ethical understanding of inequalities. Higher education institutions have an important role in shaping the social and disciplinary norms that construct these notions and in recognizing the diversity of local and international experiences that can facilitate global perspectives. This chapter puts forward a challenge to institutions to create supportive environments for the facilitation of critical global citizenship.
