Striking a Faustian Bargain? Development Education, Education for Sustainable Development and the Economic Growth Agenda
David Selby and Fumiyo Kagawa have contributed the above chapter to a new collection of papers on development education to be published early next year. Reference: McCloskey, Stephen (ed.), Development Education in Theory and Practice, Hampshire, Palgrave McMillan, 2014.
