Introduction

We are all citizens of the world. But what kind of global citizens do we want to be? The 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?

Promovendus Rosa Groen

Coordinating senior researcher

dr. Rosa Groen

Rosa Groen obtained her PhD on how governance networks attracted and retained International Organizations in four different cities in Europe: "Walking the Exte Mile". She uses this knowledge in her coordination of the research group Global Citizenship. In 2023, she was awarded the title of Sustainable Teacher of Higher Education for connecting students to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in her teaching and research. Within various study programmes, she works to achieve these goals by partnering with the professional field. Within The Hague University of Applied Sciences, she hopes this will help make study programmes 'greener'. She also leads projects with young people in the neighbourhoods of Escamp and Moerwijk and at schools in The Hague. In these, she highlights the city's international character and Sustainable Development Goal 16 (Peace, Justice and strong public services). This includes a focus on countering police discrimination. How can tensions in existing conflicts be reduced? And which interventions work best in this? 

She is also working on boosting the political participation of vocational and higher education students. She is currently focusing on the European elections in June 2024. Together with former lecturer Laurence Guérin, she is investigating how students can effectively participate in European politics. Finally, she is working on the position of migrant workers as full European citizens. In this, she investigates ways in which municipalities and employers can improve their supply of information.
