Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Policy and Practice : Decolonizing Community Contexts, Hardback Book

Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Policy and Practice : Decolonizing Community Contexts Hardback

Edited by Jennifer (University of Sheffield, UK) Lavia, Michele (University of Sheffield, UK) Moore

Part of the Routledge Research in Education series


This book provides a space in which struggles for indigenous knowledge within communities are articulated, valued, heard, and responded to.

The volume takes change as its focus, yet acknowledges that the origins and significance of change are frequently found to be unsettling.

Contributors explore different understandings of change that forge sustainable, inclusive and just communities and examine issues related to citizenship, resistance, peacemaking, critical literacies, and second chance opportunities.

The authors seek to promote advocacy of change that recognises the importance of an informed engagement with cross-cultural issues in order to foreground those missing perspectives that are often marginalised, silenced, ignored or denied.

All contributors are concerned with how the process of change can bridge the gap between social justice and exclusion and develop critical understandings of the implications of changing policy and practice for those within and working with the educational organisations and communities.
