This article proposes an ethical global citizenship education (GCE) framework by offering the following five dimensions: values-creation, identity progression, collective involvement, glocal disposition, and an intergenerational mindset. Ethical GCE draws on a multiplicity of critical literatures to identify characteristics of each of these dimensions. It goes beyond neoliberal/market-driven principles toward ethical perspectives promoting social responsibility, justice, human rights, and glocal sustainability. With further theoretical development and strategies toward implementation, the framework has the potential to be deployed in future research and evaluation of the complex teaching and learning processes involved in GCE, particularly in a values-based perspective.
