Policy and Practice Issue 33 Call for Contributors: Development Education and Social Justice

Centre for Global Education is inviting contributions to Issue 33 of our bi-annual, peer reviewed, open access journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review on the theme: “Development Education and Social Justice”.   Social justice is a cornerstone of development education and defined as “a commitment to challenging social, cultural, and economic inequalities imposed on individuals arising from any differential distribution of power, resources, and privilege”.  This issue of the journal invites contributions on how development education can respond to the weakening base for social justice, both locally and globally.  Articles can take a systemic view of social justice by opening up discussion with learners and stakeholders on new ways of thinking about development, such as de-growth, doughnut economics and a Green New Deal.  Authors could also take a topic-driven approach by focusing on some of the components of social justice; access to health justice, gender equality, climate justice, anti-racism strategies, and social movements.

Authors interested in submitting an article to Issue 33 should send a 300-word abstract to journal editor, Stephen McCloskey, by Friday, 7 May 2021.  Please email:  The submission date for commissioned articles is Friday, 9 July 2021.
