Global Citizenship Education is conceptualized as a globally oriented citizenship education which includes a historical, self-reflective element and integrates also the perspective of post-colonialism. To conclude, the further engagement of Global Citizenship Education in discussing ethical orientations as the cultural dimension of transformation processes is suggested.
