On 22 November 2019, NORRAG and the Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research launch the second volume of the open-access book series entitled NORRAG Series in International Education and Development, published by E. Elgar Cheltenham, UK. ‘Philanthropy in Education: Diverse Perspectives and Global Trends’, edited by Natasha Y. Ridge, Executive Director, Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research, and Arushi Terway, Senior Lead Research Associate, NORRAG, contributes to the emerging debates on the approaches and role of philanthropy in international education development.
With the expansion in both number and influence of philanthropic organizations working in the education sector, this volume takes a unique perspective by bringing together a range of authors with diverse backgrounds to explore some of the most pressing issues facing those working in and engaging with philanthropy and education today. The authors explore the many ways in which philanthropic actors are engaging not only with local education sectors, in a variety of countries including Brazil, Peru, Nigeria, the USA and India, but also larger trends in the sector such as new approaches to finance, the role of global policy partnerships and expanded possibilities for corporate social responsibility through corporate foundations.
The online launch of ‘Philanthropy in Education: Diverse Perspectives and Global Trends’ takes place on 22 November, the hardcopy of the book will be available on 29 November 2019.
