|Editor||A. Ross, Citizenship Education: Europe and the World|
Since 2002 the numbers of asylum-seekers arriving in the UK has decreased, but other migratory movements have increased. This paper considers how demographic changes brought about by migration affect the education system. Ethnographic research in South London and a town in eastern England included school case studies, including interviews with newly arrived children. A transnational social issue such as migration requires international governance: international migration requires global citizenship. National citizenship is increasingly mediated by membership of other collectivities: political, social, ethnic, local, regional, supernational, as well as transnational. European societies often seem unable to acknowledge multiple and multi-layered citizenship. Perhaps the answer is to include both difference and equality into our construct of citizenship, and to build global citizenship.
