We are all citizens of the world. But what kind of global citizens do we want to be? The new Global Citizenship research group explores the possibilities.
About the research group
Global citizenship is a concept with many different definitions and which covers many different aspects. Key questions are: how do we determine our responsibility for the world, as human beings and as professionals? Which values do we aspire to? How can we shape these? How much of an activist is a global citizen?
Coordinating senior researcher
dr. Rosa Groen
Rosa Groen obtained her PhD on policy networks in four different cities in Europe. She uses this knowledge in her coordination of the research group Global Citizenship. She leads projects with young people in the Schilderswijk and Moerwijk in The Hague, in which she wants to draw attention to the international character of the city. The focus will also be on combating discrimination by the police (ethnic profiling) and de-escalating conflicts in neighborhoods - and which interventions work best in this regard. She is also working on increasing the political participation of students at secondary vocational education and higher professional education, in which she focuses on the European Parliamentary Elections in June 2024. In this project, together with former professor Laurence Guérin, she is investigating how students can participate effectively in European politics. Finally, she is working on the position of migrant workers as full European citizens.
