Summary
Higher Education is a steward of socialization, a facilitator of social mobility, and a provocateur eliciting individuals' and societies' unrealized potential. Graduates of the Academy will become the next generation of those tasked with building, strengthening and maintaining the institutions and ideals underpinning current and aspiring democratic societies. But as globalization continues to blur individual, institutional and national boundaries, there are calls from and to multiple sectors to articulate productive methods for achieving the ideals of democracy and social cohesion. This text is intended to contemplate the conceptual frameworks and policy imperatives facing post-secondary/tertiary sector educational institutions in preparing citizens for meaningful participation in democracies, whether long-standing, young or emerging. The diverse international contributors discuss perspectives on how post-secondary/tertiary sector institutions are implicated in, but not necessarily leading these efforts
