This qualitative research addresses the critical need to promote global citizenship among Pakistani students through modern teaching methods in civic education with a special focus on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Recognizing the growing interconnectedness of the international community and geopolitical tensions in regions such as Pakistan. The purpose of the research was to fill the existing gap of understanding and empathy among students. This research analyses the importance of civic education, assesses the current level of awareness among Pakistani students regarding conflicts and sets clear goals for identifying effective teaching methods that go beyond the memorization. Research Questions The effects of student empathy for global issues, the integration of civic education into the curriculum affect social perceptions and attitudes towards global conflicts, especially in the case of Palestine and Israel and highlights the effectiveness of contemporary instructional approaches to increase students' awareness about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Highlighting the practical implications, this study does not theoretically underwrite to civic education literature; it delivers practical visions for teachers and policy makers. The procedure includes in-depth interviews, focus group discussions, and content analysis to collect qualitative data from a variety of samples through purposive sampling techniques. Recommendations include curriculum development, teacher training programs, and the integration of identified teaching methods into education policy.
