Education Study Group
The Education Study Group brings together both academic and NGO interests to address education issues in the context of international development.
The group encourages collaborative projects between researchers in Ireland as well as on a Global North-South basis as well as developing a dialogue with practitioners.
Special seminars are arranged from time to time and the DSA Ireland Annual Conference includes sessions devoted to education research reports.
Currently, two upcoming seminars are being planned for April early May, one in Belfast on children and education in Sudan, and one in Cork with UCC Social Policy on Human Rights, conflict and education. Full details and event listing will be posted soon.
We are also pleased to note that in April 2019 the group will publish the DSAI edition of Policy and Practice, featuring 11 articles. Our thanks is extended to all who contributed to this issue.
This study group is co-convened by Gerard McCann and David Martyn. If you have an idea you wish to share, or are interested in joining the Study Group, please email Gerard and David at email@example.com.
