back to overview

Global Education is an area of policy, practice, research and educational advocacy. An umbrella term that encompasses a variety of educational commitments; it has become increasingly integrated into the thinking of relevant institutions. But it is not uncontested. With this book, GENE – Global Education Network Europe – marks ten years of work. The book explores key contemporary issues in Global Education: issues of national strategy and structure development, of engagement with education systems. It outlines challenges in research, practice, policy and conceptual development, through detailed accounts and analysis of national and international case studies.
The book will be of use to policymakers, educationalists, researchers, and practitioners in the fields of education, international development, human rights and sustainability. GENE intends it as a contribution to the ongoing dialogue in this field, towards the day when all people in Europe – in partnership with all people globally – might have access to quality Global Education.
