This is a special commemorative, tenth anniversary collection of the most cited articles to have been published in the Centre for Global Education’s journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review over the past decade.
The journal celebrates and promotes good practice in development education; a radical and transformative educational process that empowers the learner to become actively engaged in efforts to eradicate poverty in justice both locally and globally. Since 2005, Policy and Practice has become an articulate vehicle for debating inequalities within and between the global North and South, and for encouraging active engagement with the issues underpinning poverty and injustice.
This special collection carries articles by leading scholars in the field who debate issues on the cutting edge of development education practice and the policy environment in which it is delivered.
Policy and Practice debates and affirms the transformative capacity of education to create a more just and equal world and this is an essential collection for anyone interested in exploring the role of education as a means toward progressive social change.“This special issue of Policy and Practice provides an outstanding view of the state of the field of development education from a range of excellent scholars and practitioners.
"Once again, this journal demonstrates its success in supporting educators' understanding of the contested areas and edges of development education theory and practice in many parts of the world.”

In recent years the international development sector has found itself confronting new as well as persistent challenges to poverty eradication and the promotion of human rights. Climate change has loomed large as a crisis for development practitioners as well as environmentalists, with natural disasters occurring with increasing frequency and impacting severely on the most vulnerable in the Global South. The ongoing financial crisis has created recurrent recessions in the global North, while causing budget lines to be reduced for development aid across the Global South.
From The Local to the Global highlights the extent to which the local and global are interconnected in today’s globalised economy and questions the legitimacy of the neoliberal model of development which propelled us into the crisis. This completely revised third edition takes stock of the international development environment as it embarks on new policy frameworks to confront new challenges.
From The Local to the Global is an indispensable introduction to key development issues such as aid, debt, trade, migration, security, gender in development and climate change.
