Dr Preeti Dagar

  • Lecturer in Education (School of Education)

Biography

Preeti is a Lecturer in Education Policy at the School of Education. She has an interdisciplinary PhD in Education and Urban Studies from the University of Glasgow. 

She has worked as a postdoctoral Research Associate on the ESRC-funded international research project – Gendered Journeys: the trajectories of STEM students through Higher Education and into Employment in India, Rwanda and the UK. She contributed to a multidisciplinary GCRF (£7m) project, Sustainable Healthy and Learning Cities and Neighbourhoods (SHLC), with partners in Education, Urban Studies, and Health departments in seven countries across Africa and Asia. Her doctoral research focused on the complex interaction of international and national refugee education and livelihood policies with lived realities of five distinct refugee communities: Afghan, Rohingya, Somali, Chin and Tibetan. Prior to that, she worked with indigenous groups in India. 

Preeti’s research focuses on skills development, sustainable livelihoods, decent work, and social inclusion opportunities for different marginalised populations in the Global South. She is a co-investigator on a study, ‘Decolonising Higher Education’, that analyses a master’s programme from a postcolonial lens. 

Preeti has worked with various international and local organisations such as UNIDO (Austria), UNESCO UIL (Germany), grassroots-level NGOs in India, and refugee organisations.
