Global Learning in Austria: Toward a National Strategy and Beyond

Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in FachzeitschriftArtikelPeer Reviewed


This paper discusses the development of Global Learning in Austria, paying special attention to the process and outcome of the major undertaking of developing a national strategy.The first part of the paper provides a descriptive outline of the contextual development, while the second part conjoins the description of the process of strategy development with policy discourse analysis to ask how the idea of a pedagogical response to globalisation affects policy and how engaging with policy affects that idea.The concept of Global Learning as defined in the strategy document is examined in its orientation and intent using a conceptual framework that highlights differing approaches to global citizenship education, in an attempt to situate the Strategy’s conceptual approach in the broader international discourse.
