BOOK LAUNCH | Universities and Global Human Development: Theoretical and Empirical Insights for Social Change
BOOK LAUNCH | THURSDAY 2ND FEBRUARY 2017, LONDON
This book makes the case for a critical turn in development thinking around universities and their contributions in making a more equal post-2015 world. It puts forward a normative approach based on human development and the capability approach, one which can gain a hearing from policy, scholarship, and practitioners dealing with practical issues of understanding policy, democratising research and knowledge, and fostering student learning - all key university functions.
