The author begins by addressing the conceptual complexities surrounding the field of GCE, with its hegemonic and critical aspects, and the various forms in which it has been designed and implemented in education over the past decade. Engaging with the vignettes in this special issue and drawing on her own personal experience as a migrant in different countries, the author explores the aspects of belonging, mobility, and context, and the significance of the opportunities and limitations of these in the act of education. Ultimately, she shows, GCE must remain an open-ended and authentic exploration of context
