This chapter examines culture and citizenship: their conceptual links as shared identity brought about through meaning-making within groups, and as political and social frameworks meant to strengthen the legitimacy of the nation-state. It discusses theoretical approaches to cultural diversity while attending to issues of power, equality, inclusion, and exclusion. In light of increasing globalization, the chapter highlights emerging forms of global cultures and hegemonies and explores implications in the education of young citizens.
