This new internationally refereed journal publishes the outcomes of research and current debates on development education and related concepts such as global learning, global education and global citizenship.
The journal is an academic response to the increased public and educational interest in learning and understanding about the wider world. It offers greater understanding of the reasons for global inequality and how global issues such as poverty affect people’s everyday lives. It critically explores international development issues so as to help people develop the practical skills and confidence to make positive changes, both locally and globally.
This is the first academic journal specifically to address these matters. Development education and related areas such as global learning have their roots primarily in the practice of non-governmental organisations. The journal brings to the international academic and research community the richness and importance of this neglected academic area. Its purpose is to help advance theoretical and empirical understanding of development education and global learning through a focus on papers reporting research, policy, practice and current debate in the field. The content will reflect international debates and understanding of public support for global development issues. The journal will also carry book reviews, conference proceedings and reviews, retrospective analysis of activities in a particular field, critical commentaries on policy issues and comparative aspects of a development education issue.
