This paper reports findings from a theoretical debate between Citizenship and Social Justice Approaches for education. The study analyzes educational alternatives, from theory to practice, based on three main concepts: Social Redistribution, Cross cultural Recognition and Social Participation. These pedagogical alternatives are based on social dilemmas, regarding topics such as cultural diversity, gender and democracy. The implications for global citizenship education are considered, as are also theoretical considerations of how dilemmas reveal complex dynamics of social performance and understanding. Keywords: Social Justice, Citizenship Education, Cosmopolitan, dilemmas, classroom
