New issue

Extension of special issue of key journal 'Sinergias'.

The 12th issue of the peer-reviewed Portuguese journal Sinergias - Diálogos Educativos para a Transformação Social, focusing on the policy environment, is now available. This is the second volume of a special issue that is the result of a joint call with three european journals focused on development education and global learning:

  • International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning (United Kingdom)
  • Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review (Ireland)
  • ZEP: Journal of International Research and Development Education (Germany)

The focus of this issue remains "The Policy Environment for Development Education”. It features discussion on how national and international policies for DE are being implemented and articulated, namely focusing on its potential, obstacles and challenges.

The journal is available, free of charge, on the DE Synergies project’s website.


The digital journal Synergies – Educational dialogues for social change, a specialized scientific magazine with peer-review, aims to establish itself as an international discussion and conceptual, methodological and practices reflection platform in Development Education/ Global Citizenship Education/ Global Education and serve as a mean of knowledge dissemination and production in this area.
