A lot has been written about the EU referendum and there will be much more published in the final few days. These think pieces and articles are not just political spats from either side of the fence but a wider debate has emerged around critiques of the referendum itself.

Think Global's survey of schools about 'Prevent' has shown that many lack confidence in 'proactive safeguarding' - creating a safe space within school for children to discuss difficult global issues connected to extremism and radicalisation. This is in contrast to much greater confidence with 'reactive safeguarding' - spotting the danger signs and taking action.
Think Global's Head of Programmes Monika Kruesmann picks up on complexities behind the decision of three young women to leave Bradford for Syria; and considers the role of critical thinking in understanding both the 'push' and 'pull' factors.
At Think Global we've developed a set of 10 questions which illustrate what critical questioning looks like in practice. Through applying these questions to a global situation or issue, and seeking answers, a student (or teacher, or any learner) will be a global learner, exploring issues of power, voice, equality and the impact of actions.
