Education and NGOs discusses the role of sectors outside the mainstream in relation to improving access to education, with particular focus on the underprivileged. International case study examples offer insights into the work of non-governmental organizations, which play a crucial role in UNESCO's global Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) effort, by providing alternative forms of education and improving educational access. Including a discussion of the work of organizations such as Africa Educational Trust, Kids Company, FIDAL Foundation and many others, the volume explores the role of NGOs in the UK, the USA, India, Nepal, the Gaza Strip, Ecuador, Philippines and South Africa. Each chapter contains contemporary questions to encourage active engagement with the material and an annotated list of suggested reading to support further exploration.

In view of the significant psychological damage which refugees can suffer during emergency periods, education can no longer be seen as an optional extra - the quality of the education provided at these times can be crucial to a nation's rebirth.

Through the efforts of increasingly media-aware NGOs, people in rich nations are bombarded with images of poverty and suffering. Representations of Global Poverty is the first comprehensive study of the communications and imagery used by international NGOs to represent the global South. In this meticulously researched and original book, Nandita Dogra examines a full cycle of representation – integrating analyses of an annual cycle of fundraising and advocacy messages of international development NGOs in the UK with the views of their staff and audiences. Exploring NGO messages across the discourses of charity, justice, humanism, cosmopolitanism, colonialism and Eurocentrism, she argues for a greater acknowledgement of NGOs as significant mediating institutions which can expand understandings of global inequalities. The book is a timely addition to the growing fields of development, media and postcolonial studies and will be a key resource for academics, policymakers and practitioners alike who have an interest in global poverty, aid, NGOs, and the politics of representation.

What is the relationship between education and natural disasters? Can education play a role in ameliorating and mitigating them, preparing people in how to respond, and even helping to prevent them? If so, how? Drawing on research carried out in a number of different countries, including Australia, China, India, Japan, the UK and the USA, the contributors consider the role of education in relation to natural disasters. The case studies expand conceptual and empirical understandings of the understudied relationship between education and natural disasters, uncover the potential and the limitations of education for mitigating, responding to, and potentially preventing, natural disasters. The contributors also consider the extent to which so-called natural disasters, such as mudslides caused by deforestation and flooding areas built on known flood plains, are linked to human behaviour and how education can impact on these.

Access to education is a fundamental human right under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and represents a key tool to protect refugee children from recruitment into forced labour, military activity, prostitution and crime. The papers presented in this book were commissioned by the UNHCR and presented at a workshop on refugee education held in March 2001 in the United States. Issues discussed include: educational response in emergency situations; quality of refugee school programmes; youth education for peace and conflict resolution; and a case study of vocational training programmes in Tanzania.
