Information Politics, Transnational Advocacy, and Education for All
Magrath, Bronwen
Comparative Education Review, v59 n4 p666-692 Nov 2015
This article explores transnational activism within Education for All (EFA), looking specifically at the strategic use of information and research by transnational advocacy organizations. Through a comparative case-study examination of two prominent civil society organizations within the EFA movement--the Asia South Pacific Association for Basic and Adult Education (ASPBAE) and ActionAid International--I discuss how information about education is gathered, generated, and disseminated for advocacy purposes. I explore how informational strategies are shaped both by political opportunities in global educational governance and by the internal dynamics and cultures of these organizations.
