Seminar on Development Education and Social Justice

Centre for Global Education & Praxis (UCC Development and Global Citizenship Education Project) invite you to a seminar titled:

Seminar on Development Education and Social Justice

This seminar has been organised to present and debate the content of Issue 33 of the Centre for Global Education’s bi-annual, open access, peer reviewed journal Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review.  The theme of this issue is ‘Development Education and Social Justice’ which takes stock of one of the cornerstones of development education, social justice, at a time when it is being assailed by the triple interlocking global threats of inequality, the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate emergency.  Three of the articles published in Issue 33 will be presented at this seminar and address the delivery of development education in the following contexts: pre-service education in Japan; Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in post-apartheid South Africa; and ethical communications among international development NGOs in Ireland. The seminar will enable authors to debate their articles with readers and facilitate discussion on good practice in development education.  Each speaker will present their articles 10-15mins followed by questions.

Tuesday, 1 March 2022 from 12.00pm – 1.30pm (via Zoom)
