The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize the intersections of multicultural education and cosmopolitanism. We aim to explore how multicultural education and cosmopolitanism connect and diverge, especially when considering both from within a critical theoretical perspective. Within this work, we explore how these two sets of ideas can inform each other and, as important, how they can be used in the service of the broader work towards social justice in education. This new perspective is what we have named Critical Cosmopolitan Multicultural Education (CCME).
