Call for Papers

Within this issue, Synergies joined three other journals in the field of development education journals across Europe to launch a common call for papers: International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning (England); Policy and Practice: A Development Education Review (Ireland); ZEP: Journal of International Research and Development Education (Germany).

This call is being launched at a particularly precarious period in our history. We face a pandemic whose effects are not yet fully known, we are experiencing a climate emergency that threatens the mass extinction of biodiversity, we are witnessing act of violent discrimination that threaten social cohesion. 

The thematic focus of this issue will be "The Policy Environment for Development Education and Global Learning" and aim to collectively take stock of how national and international policies are interacting with the development education (DE) and global learning sector.

This collaboration enables authors of different types of articles from research through to opinion and practitioner pieces to contribute to a single debate.

This joint call is searching for articles that address one or more of the following topics:

  • Theoretical explorations of the link between policy and practice in development education and global learning
  • The impact of the policy environment for development education and global learning on practice
  • The development of the discourse of social and economic justice within development education and global learning historically and in particular national contexts
  • The role of the SDGs in framing educational and policy responses
  • Innovative policies that support development education and global learning in the current context of a climate emergency, rising levels of xenophobia and attacks on migrants, the shift to the far right in countries across the world, and reduced funding for this field
  • Examples of good practice in development education and global learning in the formal and informal education sectors
  • How national policies are promoting or constraining radical development education and global learning responses aiming for citizen action on global social justice

Key dates to keep in mind:

  • June 29, 2020 – deadline for submission of abstracts
  • July 06, 2020 – communication of the selected abstracts
  • September 30, 2020  deadline for submission of full papers
  • December 2020 – estimated date of publication
