Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

Education has played a central role in discussions about the social development and modernisation of societies. Sociological and economic concepts and theories of education have long informed development discourse and policy (e.g., social rates of return analysis/human capital theory, knowledge society). The impact of these concepts and educational development policies has been particularly strong in African education systems. The seminar offers an introduction to different theories and concepts, an analysis education policies of selected international development actors and a discussion of the applicability of the discussed theories and policies in practice based on empirical studies of educational development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
