A key aspect of NORRAG’s work is to provide a platform for education stakeholders, particularly those from the global South and East, to give voice to their expertise and experience. NORRAG therefore regularly invites its Members and relevant parties to contribute to its Blog platform, by highlighting recent work or initiatives, or to discuss relevant issues relating to NORRAG’s main thematic areas. These Blog contributions are then posted in the NORRAG website where education stakeholders are invited to respond either through the comments section or through a blog of their own.

NORRAG’s Blog is articulated around two main categories – NORRAG Highlights and NORRAG Debates.

NORRAG Debates aim to foster dialogue between all stakeholders around specific topics. Debate streams are introduced by a short introductory blog and contributors are then invited to respond to identified questions or topics relevant to the stream.

NORRAG Highlights aim to provide overviews of current trends and events in the global education community. Its purpose is to showcase the work of NORRAG Members and other stakeholders and to highlight emerging issues and research.

Our target audience is broad, composed of development actors, academics, students and interested visitors to our web site.
