Book chapter on development education‏ (authors will receive 300 euro)


Kimmage Development Studies Centre in cooperation with the NGO Support Centre in Cyprus and Pontis Foundation in Slovakia, is issuing a Call for Authors to write a chapter in a publication on development education.

Book characteristic:

The proposed book should fill in the missing gap in the market on development education publications in the New Member States of the European Union. Apart from providing just another book on general development education topics, this publication should address unique issues and challenges, which are present in the countries of the EU13 New Member States. The selection committee will, therefore, focus on how the proposed text enriches the development education discourse in one or a group of New Member States.

The main target group of the book are university teachers, researchers, post-graduate students and practitioners. The submitted material should reflect this in content and style.

The book’s purpose is to be used as a learning toolkit for university educators. Each chapter will, therefore, include a conceptual introductory part and a teaching methodology part (see below).

The book will address the following topics:

1. Development Education in third level education

2. Poverty: Who, where and why?

3. Local and Global Governance: role and impact in development

4. Sustainable Development vs. Economic Growth

5. Global Health: New Challenges

6. Food Production: Global Business, Local Consequences

7. Corporate Social Responsibility: Role of Business in Development
