Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review. Fifteenth Anniversary Edition

This is a special commemorative, fifteenth anniversary collection of the Centre for Global Education’s bi-annual, peer reviewed and open access journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review. The journal celebrates and promotes good practice in development education; a radical and transformative educational process that empowers the learner to become actively engaged in efforts to eradicate poverty in justice both locally and globally. Since 2005, Policy and Practice has become an articulate vehicle for debating inequalities within and between the global North and South, and for encouraging active engagement with the issues underpinning poverty and injustice. This special collection carries articles by leading scholars in the field who debate issues on the cutting edge of development education practice and the policy environment in which it is delivered. Policy and Practice debates and affirms the transformative capacity of education to create a more just and equal world and this is an essential collection for anyone interested in exploring the role of education as a means toward progressive social change. It contains 32 articles on a wide range of topics including: climate change, migration, gender, Latin America and human rights. The contributors include: Vanessa Andreotti, Douglas Bourn, Su-ming Khoo, Sarah Stein, Alejandra Boni and David Selby. The special collection is available to buy at: https://publications.centreforglobaleducation.com/

Policy and Practice: Database of Citations

The aim of the database is to measure the impact of the journal in supporting research and enhancing good practice in development education. It also helps us monitor the level of dialogical debate between authors within Policy and Practice. The citations speak to the relevance of journal articles to current debates in development education policy and practice, and its capacity to initiate new topics for discussion among educators.


The Centre for Global Education recently circulated a call for short articles exploring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on development education practice and how we can respond to the pandemic as practitioners.
