Round Table Discussions

Global policy agendas and the Sustainable Development Goals
Beyond Dependence: Reshaping Aid to Education for Sustainable Futures
Keith Lewin

Over the last three decades well over half a trillion dollars has been disbursed as aid to education through bilateral and multilateral agencies. New global campaigns seek to massively elevate levels of aid to education and quadruple its volume and transform education systems that have so far proved resistant to change. National investment has combined with external assistance to help some low income countries transform their education systems. In other countries progress has been disappointing raising the question as to whether more aid of the same kind will make a difference in future. Comparative educationists have an opportunity to give voice to their different experiences with development aid to identify those approaches that are more effective at accelerating sustainable educational development and which are likely to reduce long term aid dependence in the future.

Social movements, indigenous knowledges and collective learning
Indigenous Peoples and Higher Education: Considering the issue from a human rights perspective
Keith Holmes, Mari Yasunaga, and Paz Portales

This round table discussion uses a human rights perspective to explore collectively how higher education could be reimagined to address the rights, needs and interests of Indigenous Peoples, in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

From a human rights perspective, education and indigenous peoples have been considered in two different and complementary aspects. On one hand, indigenous peoples are holders of the right to education as individuals and as a collective. As such, their cultural, spiritual, linguistic and traditional knowledge can be sustained through the means of an inclusive and participatory education. On the other hand, indigenous knowledge, skills and competences represent substantial pieces of human wisdom and heritage, which implies that Indigenous People should be key actors in the development of inclusive higher education policies, systems, institutions, programmes and practices.

Participants will have the opportunity to contribute to a new UNESCO initiative which aims to contribute to improving the access of Indigenous Peoples to inclusive and equitable quality and relevant higher education, recognizing that ‘Indigenous Peoples’ and ‘Higher Education’ are new elements featuring in global education agenda, SDG4-Education 2030. This initiative will compile and produce up-to-date information and knowledge from a comparative and international perspective and establish a network on Indigenous Peoples and Higher Education to act as a sounding board and a laboratory of ideas.

Research ethics in international and comparative education
Chair: Lizzi O. Milligan

Esther McMahon and Lizzi O. Milligan (University of Bath) will first present the findings from a survey with BAICE members about ethics in international and comparative education and put forward the key ethical principles that have emerged from this study. Lucy Atkinson (University of York) Qing Gu (University of Nottingham/BAICE) and Arathi Sriprakash (University of Cambridge) will reflect on these principles related to their own research. The roundtable will then open up to a wider discussion of the ethical principles and the implications for BAICE. The roundtable will be chaired by Lizzi O. Milligan.
