Publication Date



The authors compare and contrast the United States and Hungary to characterize how university-level learners understand the concept of 'intercultural citizen'; they decided that the term 'global citizen' would be more accessible to learners replying to a questionnaire. Although they find some understanding of the concept among their two national groups, they conclude that it is limited and that a richer understanding needs to be developed.
