Speaker information

Professor Hugh Starkey, Professor in Education, UCL Institute of Education

Hugh Starkey presents the second of this year's UCL Institute of Education inaugural professorial lecture series.

Citizenship education engages with living together in diverse societies. Drawing lessons from historic struggles against racist structures and ideologies, Hugh Starkey notes that leaders such as Mandela, King and Malcolm X invoked the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to invite solidarity, linking local and global communities in common citizenship. Education for cosmopolitan citizenship provides expression for multiple voices and promotes common standards that both include and transcend so-called fundamental British values.

If you would like to attend please email Michael Walker and a place will be reserved for you. The lecture will be followed by a wine reception.
