2 FOSTERING GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP AND GLOBAL COMPETENCE: A NATIONAL SYMPOSIUM The concepts of global citizenship and global competence have gained increasing currency over the past 20 years. The term global citizenship, especially, is now routinely used in a wide range of political, social, cultural, economic, diplomatic and educational contexts. There is also significant government interest in deepening Australia s global engagement particularly in the Asian region through the business, industry, science, education and research sectors. This outward focus is increasingly reflected in national policy and Australia s political and public diplomacy. However, it is not altogether clear how best to express and embed global citizenship in various national enterprises including education. This one-day national symposium will bring focus to the discussion and critically examine what we mean by global citizenship and global competence for Australian higher education students. IEAA acknowledges the financial and other support provided by the Australian Government Department of Education. This event is also supported by the Office for Learning and Teaching and the Victorian Department of State Development, Business and Innovation.
