New Issue

Summer issue of International Journal of Development Education & Global Learning available now open access. 

A new issue of one of the key journals for the global education research community is now available via Science Open. The issue, "Challenges and tensions in global learning and global citizenship education", offers a range of perspectives on the challenges and tensions in global learning and global citizenship education facing educators in different contexts. The authors examine the dilemmas educators are confronted with, and explore possible responses and modalities for responding to those challenges in a range of geographical areas. 

The International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning, founded by ANGEL project partners the Development Education Research Centre, is an open-access internationally refereed journal that publishes the outcomes of research and current debates on development education and related concepts such as global learning, global education, and global citizenship.
