Complex Collaborations: India and International Agendas on Girls' and Women's Education, 1947-1990
Vaughan, Rosie Peppin
International Journal of Educational Development, v33 n2 p118-129 Mar 2013
This article explores the dynamics of global campaigns for education through a study of the movement for girls' and women's education in India since independence in 1947. In particular, it uses the trajectory of ideas within India to theorise about international collaboration on educational goals, with UNESCO and the World Bank being two of the most prominent agencies in the second half of the twentieth century. The article presents an analysis of shifting discourses around women's education at national and international level, along with an exploration of the diverse points of contact between policymakers, activists and academics at both levels. (Contains 1 table.)
