Citizenship, democracy and human rights have always been central to higher education and increasing globalization has amplified their urgency and complexity. This volume explores conceptual, theoretical and policy implications for post-secondary education engaging with these topics, comparing the USA, Canada, Eastern Europe and Western Europe.

Citizenship, Democracy and Higher Education in Europe, Canada and the USA dissects citizenship education at the university, crossing regional boundaries and cultures. While the compilation of essays and approaches shared in Citizenship, Democracy, and Higher Education is valuable as a whole, some chapters stand out as particularly enlightening for readers who are new to the topic. the work as a whole is indeed worthwhile, and its completion should be regarded as a success. (Kathleen A. Tobin, Global Education Review, Vol. 3 (3), 2016)
