Description In the presented contribution, the authors investigate the discourse of global competencies for social justice through stakeholders' perspectives from worldwide Higher Education. Ten semi-structured interviews were used and analyzed using situation analysis (Clarke et al., 2018). The main research question was how the professionals of Higher Education construct and deliver the global competencies in their curriculum. The results show that four essential topics based on global competencies are: the critical shift in internationalization, sustainability, decolonization of power, and pluralism in cultural dominance. In-depth conceptualization and implementation of global competencies may support universities' role in education toward global citizenship and foster the compensation of structural inequalities caused by national territorialism.
