The theme of Issue 32 is ‘Development Education and Transnationalism’ which considers some of the social, economic and political connections between people, places and institutions across the world.
As Guest Editor, La Salete Coelho, suggests this is a timely theme ‘as the world has never before been so interconnected and so interdependent’. She suggests that:
“To the countless challenges that humanity has been facing together in recent years 2020 added others such as spikes in racism and the global response of the Black Lives Matter movement, the toppling of memorials linked to colonialism, and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences, worsening pre-existing inequalities and creating new ones”.
Some of these urgent, global challenges are considered in this issue including: contemporary slavery; migration; the media’s marginalisation of African countries; climate change; and NGO public engagement strategies. The COVID-19 pandemic is inevitably prevalent in this issue, particularly in an article about the use of ‘collective memory work in development education’.
