AbstractThe article focuses on goals adopted in Hong Kong and Taiwan in order to prepare citizens for the challenges of globalization. Notwithstanding the demands to create global citizens, in Hong Kong and in Taiwan, school curricula have responded to contemporary sociopolitical changes primarily in relation to the People's Republic of China. Recent reforms in both Hong Kong and Taiwan have emphasized generic and transnational skills, such as English proficiency and information technology, and developed tripartite frameworks for citizenship education at local, national, and global levels. The reconfiguration of citizenship and citizenship education in Hong Kong and Taiwan are useful counterexamples to the predictions of transnational convergence offered by some globalization theorists.
