Education and Development

educationEducation is seen as key to addressing marginalisation and poverty, but it can also be a cause of both. Working through these tensions, analysing educational processes and linking development theories to education theory, policy and practices is a rich and challenging interdisciplinary field of Global Development at Leeds.

Dr Caroline Dyer at the School of Politics and International Studies is currently working on issues surrounding education and development. Many claims are made for education’s role in supporting social, economic and political development, but there are many contradictions too.
