Proposals for Global Citizenship Education (ECG) are often presented as derived from quasi-natural processes of pedagogical evolution. In this evolutionary thinking, ECG represents a more advanced stage of pedagogical innovation and, consequently, appears as the best and most comprehensive educational model. It is important to point out that in the period 1990-2019 two simultaneous trends seek to develop different models of citizenship. If the ECG seeks to develop a cosmopolitan global citizen, other pedagogical proposals aim to transform notions of citizenship by giving priority to the rights of a neoliberal "global consumer" over "global / civic" rights. This article reviewed 62 peer-reviewed articles on ECG and identified the predominance of an idealized redemptive pedagogical orientation that has many limitations and fundamentally does not confront the consumerist options offered by neoliberal pedagogical models.
