Travelling Policies and Global Buzzwords: How International Non-Governmental Organizations and Charities Spread the Word about Early Childhood in the Global South
Penn, Helen
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v18 n1 p94-113 Feb 2011
This article is based on a web-search commissioned by an international charity to review the work of international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) and charities which promote and support early childhood education and care (ECEC) in the global South. The article examines examples of such initiatives. It is suggested that there is considerable commonality of view and overlap of activities between INGOs and charities whatever their origin in the global North, and whichever countries they are operating in, in the global South. These findings are analysed in the light of theories of knowledge transfer in the field of international development. (Contains 3 notes and 1 table.)
