Critical History Matters: Understanding development education in Ireland today through the lens of the past.
Dillon, Eilish
This article argues that adopting a critical historical perspective can enhance our understanding of development education (DE) today. Drawing on a genealogical approach which emphasises power relations, it focuses on discursive and institutional influences which have helped to shape different and contradictory understandings of DE in contemporary Ireland.
