A global perspective on leadership in educational research is offered that is focused on the educational knowledge generation and mobilization of the explanations of self-study practitioner-researchers of their educational influences in learning with values of human
flourishing that include living global citizenship. The explanations are drawn from Living Theory researchers in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Pakistan, Nepal, China, Afghanistan, Romania, Hawaii and Italy. An analysis of meanings of
living global citizenship takes care to answer questions and to reduce the colonizing influences of a definition of living global citizenship influenced by Western academic discourses. An analysis of the power relations involved in legitimating the livingeducational-theories of individual in global academic contexts, is followed by an analysis of
the educational knowledge mobilization of Living Theory research in global contexts.
Educational Leadership in this knowledge mobilization is focused on a living-educationaltheory of international development. It includes the importance of communities of educational researchers working and researching collaboratively to extend the influence of Living Theory research as a global social movement with values that carry hope for human flourishing. The role of the multi-media Educational Journal of Living Theories (EJOLTS) in providing global educational leadership is focused on the use of digital visual evidence in both the generation of valid explanations of educational influences in learning and in the
clarification of meanings of embodied expressions of values of human flourishing.
