The term ‘global citizenship’ has gained increasing prominence in higher education discourse over the past decade (Knight, 2013). But what do we mean by ‘global citizens’? What are the core traits that determine global citizenship and how do we determine whether the impact of international initiatives in higher education fosters these identified traits? The aim of this chapter is to explore the multifaceted concept of global citizenship, to provide a critical reflection on the different ways in which global citizenship has been assessed, and to make a call to action for a comprehensive tool that encompasses all relevant global citizen concepts.
