Abstract

Development education is much more than learning about development; it is a pedagogy for the globalised societies of the twenty-first century that incorporates discourses for critical pedagogy and postcolonialism, and a mechanism for ensuring that different perspectives are reflected within education. This ground-breaking volume addresses the history, theoretical influences, practices and impact of development education in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan. Chapters include how development education evolved, the influences of theorists such as Paulo Freire, the practices of aid and development agencies and the impact of governments seeking evidence of public understanding of and engagement in development.
