Rosanne Tromp

Rosanne Tromp is a post-doc researcher with the IS Academie research group Education and International Development. She lectures in MA courses within the International Development Studies department at the University of Amsterdam, and has taught on the BA Education and International Development at the same department, as well as on the MA at the Political Sciences department at the University of Amsterdam. She developed a BA course on Education and Development for the University of Michoacán in Mexico. Her PhD research was conducted for the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia, and concerned a multi-scalar analysis of the re-contextualisation of global education policy in Mexico.

Rosanne’s overall research focus has been on the human imagination, social practices and related knowledge systems that run through education policy, and how this shapes outcomes in terms of social justice. Her main areas of research are the global governance of education, the role of international organizations in education, the analysis of the politics of education policy, education policy transfer, education privatization, alternative education, indigenous and intercultural education, and teacher unions. She is exploring visual research methods as a tool to capture the multiplicity of realities that are elusive to traditional research methods.

Rosanne is a board member of the Netherlands Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (NALACS) (2016-2019). She co-founded the civil society organisation Saving Mexico, which is an umbrella organisation that groups Mexican and Dutch citizens mobilising around Mexican struggles such as human rights issues. She has worked and lived extensively in Latin America, the UK and the US. Her work experience includes INGOs and a regional Ministry of Education in Mexico.
