The New Global Governance Paradigm in Education: Public-private partnerships and social justice

Susan Robertson is director of the Centre of Educational and Globalisation at the University of Bristol. Her lecture examines the dual agenda for education, arguing that current views of public private partnerships, as a way of realising Education For All goals, severely limits the potential of education. Olga Nieuwenhuys is associate professor at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. Her lecture argues that private-public partnerships are highly profitable for private educational entrepreneurs but drain public funds, fail to create new jobs or
opportunities, exasperate the competition for diplomas and force young diploma holders to migrate abroad in search of unskilled jobs.
