Comparative Education and Development Alternatives
Critiques, innovations and transitions
The aim of this conference is to consider how central concepts in the field of comparative and international education – such as development, sustainability and global social justice– can be reimagined in order to offer new trajectories for educational research, policy and practice. We want to unpick what we mean by the idea of education for sustainable development and examine the different ways education might play out to meet – or challenge – the sustainable development goals (SDGs). This means searching for alternative approaches and reimagining the intersections between the many debates. Through this dialogue we hope to challenge dominant frameworks in order to imagine new possibilities for the future.
This conference will be hosted by the University of York, Centre for Research on Education and Social Justice and is supported by the Research Centre for Social Sciences, the Justice and Equality Research Theme and the York International Development Network.
