Education, Migration and the Urban 

Carli Rowell, Research fellow, The University of Glasgow

This presentation builds upon what is already widely known in relation to education, the global south and development and explores some of the core issues pertaining to education in urban contexts. Secondly, given that this presentation derives from the SHLC project it will also outline the core themes and issues that the project seeks to address. Specifically, given that a key aim of SHLC is to explore the challenges associated with urbanisation and large-scale rural-to-urban migration in Africa and Asia the presentation will present core themes related to migration and education. Finally, the seminar with be drawn to a close by considering some of questions that are raised and there will be time to reflect upon how SHLC and researchers per se could seek to ask them.
