dc.description.abstract[EMBARGOED UNTIL 5/1/2024] An inclusive attitude towards immigrants is a crucial attribute for students to develop, especially in a globalized world with an increasing number of international migrants and refugees. Promoting inclusive attitudes towards immigrants can not only help immigrant students feel included and succeed in schools and host countries, but may also reduce discrimination, xenophobia, and hate crimes. To this end, global citizenship education has been developed and implemented worldwide to prepare students for respectful and peaceful interactions with people from different cultures and countries. This study investigates whether global citizenship education can foster inclusive attitudes towards immigrants and examines how this relationship depends on intergroup contact at school and multicultural school climate. Using large-scale international data from the Programme for International Student Assessment and employing two-level multilevel modeling with country-fixed effects, the findings show that global citizenship education is positively associated with students' inclusive attitudes towards immigrants. Moreover, this relationship is strengthened by intergroup contact, especially when students are exposed to three types of global citizenship education. This study provides comprehensive and empirical evidence of the role of global citizenship education in cultivating inclusive attitudes towards immigrants on an international level.eng
