This paper explores the concepts of human rights and global citizenship in a discussion of theory and practice. It highlights some of the disjunctions that exist separately between the theoretical concepts and the methodological practice of human rights work and global citizenship education. In unpacking the disjunctions that exist respectively between these two concepts, a powerful connection surfaces as a hypothetical working solution to fill in the gaps. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the important connections, both theoretically and practically, so as to highlight the interwoven nuances of responsibility, global consciousness, and active engagement of both human rights work and global citizenship education.
