April 20, 2017: Transnational Democratic Education

The basic idea that motivates this book is that educational public policy should aim at realizing global rather than merely domestic justice. The book unpacks the normative implications of this idea and argues for a conception of transnational democratic education as primary moral end of educational public policy. This conception demands that educational public policy should promote more democratic arrangements within, between and beyond states by cultivating not only a national but also a transnational democratic ethos. The book develops this conception by juxtaposing it to fairness-based, domestic democracy-based and cosmopolitan conceptions of education, and defends it against objections from postmodern and postcolonial theorists that criticize it as ideological and parochial.
