Abstract

In this special issue we call attention to the role of 'Critical Multicultural Citizenship Education' (CMCE) in schools, societies and global contexts. The fundamental goal of CMCE is to increase not only the students' awareness of, and participation in, the political aspects of democracy, but also students' abilities to create and live in an ethnically diverse and just community. CMCE challenges and transforms existing ways in which students engage civically and democratically in local, national, and global contexts. Ten articles in this special issue are grouped by three categories: (1) social studies classrooms and citizenship; (2) community and citizenship; and (3) global contexts and citizenship.
