The Future of Education and Public Policy Online Event - 30 June, 1 July

Following a successful debut in 2021, the Future of Education and Public Policy event returns for its second year, with a two-day online event taking place on 30 June and 1 July.

This event ties into our MSc in Education, Public Policy and Equity, a programme that has been running for 6 years and attracts a very international body of students. The event provides students and staff with interactions with scholars and previous students in the field of education and public policy. We can also engage with international colleagues and help build relationships across the sector – this will also tie into the existing network in in this field, the EPPE network, which itself is an offshoot of the programme

The whole event will be virtual and delivered over zoom.

Confirmed speakers over the two days include:

- Oakleigh Welpy (Durham University, UK) Discourses of migration and education in the media: an analysis of the press in France and England

- Suresh Babu G.S, (Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India) Indian Higher Education: Current challenges of the educational Policy discourses and practices

- Álvaro González Torres (Universidad Católica Silva Henríquez, Chile) Success, Struggle and Survival: How accountability policies influence the improvement of "failing" schools

- Kathryn Moeller (Cambridge University, UK) Educational Capitalization: An Intersectional Feminist Framework for Understanding Venture Capital Investment in Education

- Mark Murphy (University of Glasgow, UK) The pursuit of publicness: exploring the relation between education and public policy
