This [publication] serves a very valuable purpose in examining how people learn and become more driven to become engaged in efforts to reduce global poverty, and where the challenges or barriers lie in facilitating that learning. It will help to guide future policy and programmes across the development sector, to build public support for development in the UK. (Diana Dalton, Head of Building Support for Development Department of International Development (DFID))
As a field of research and scholarship 'development education' has rightly extended beyond geography, drawing from a bewildering array of perspectives from world studies, to global education and citizenship and more recently futures education. This book picks a way through this scene in a manner that is both critical and productive. (David Lambert, Chief Executive Geographical Association)
...a useful contribution to the field and offers opportunities to reflect on contemporary practice. The spaces between the positions elaborated by its contributors will provide fertile ground in which readers can grow their own solutions to difficult problems. (Dr Roland Tormey Policy & Practice: A Development Education Review)
