Global Citizenship

I attended another global talk for International Week by Dr. Jochen Fried, the distinguished faculty member at SJSU from Salzburg Global Seminar (where I have an internship this spring!!!), about global citizenship. Dr. Fried talked about what globalization means and our notions of citizenship and then pulled the two ideas together to discuss global citizenship. I'm just going to highlight a few things that popped out at me.

- Global citizenship is annoying because its an oxymoron. Citizenship means belonging to a political unit, but global is all-inclusive and there is no legal sense. Nationalistic citizenship appeals to common sense. But globalization teaches us that territory and space are relative and global warming, computer viruses, AIDs, etc. have no passports.
- We have to admit that we are inextricably bound to one another. Systemic challenges cannot be dealt with by a single nation state.
- The big, scary global issues require multidimensional and multilevel politics, management by citizens with different perspectives (global citizens)
- People cannot be categorized by one system of divisions, but are members of a variety of groups, and can have many identities at once. (Fried attributes this to Amartya Sen).
