Given interconnectedness of the Sustainable Development Goals Framework, with special reference to SDG 4 on education, and the broad-ranging issues that touch the field of education and global development there is an increased need to mobilize knowledge, synthesize insights, and collaborate. The Education and Global Development Network aims to serve as an academic platform for Canadian scholars and researchers working on issues related to education and global development to connect with one another, share research, and to collaborate. The network is envisioned as a multi-and inter-disciplinary forum for research exchange and scholarly collaboration.
