Global Citizenship Seminars for Students

The seminars for students provide a space for participants to critically engage with the central questions of the new global world order. In an international setting, participants have the opportunity to encounter perspectives that literally and figuratively lie outside the borders of the U.S. What does globalization mean for our economic, political, cultural and social realities and what are our civic responsibilities in the context of the changes brought on by globalization? In what ways does the often disruptive impact of globalization require new forms of cooperation that simultaneously include and transcend the nation state? What does it mean to be a global citizen in an interdependent world and how can we translate this knowledge into action – in one’s everyday personal and professional life? With changing thematic foci (e.g. sustainable development, human rights, refugees and migration), the seminars expose students to the idea of cosmopolitanism in a way that allows participants to develop the knowledge and commitment to attach their own meaning to the adage of “think globally, act locally.”
