Academic Network on Global Education & Learning (ANGEL) Conference 2019

Date: May 9, 2019 — May 10, 2019
Location: Bloomsbury, London, UK


The ANGEL Conference 2019 is a key UK event for those working in, or with an interest in, Global Education research. It will also function as a gathering for members of the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning. The event will be held 9 & 10th of May 2019 here in Bloomsbury, London. The event builds on the success of the Global Learning conference organised by the Development Education Research Centre (DERC) in 2017.

The Conference is aimed at academics, researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from around the world and papers and presentations will cover all sectors of education, evidence from empirical based research as well as discussion on approaches to building more effective connections between researchers and policy-makers – building on the research and policy dialogue that has been led by Global Education Network Europe (GENE), in partnership with DERC. In addition, all plenary sessions will include discussions on how to take forward the themes addressed by the keynote speakers in developing and implanting policies, informing research and helping to improve the quality of educational practice.  

The Conference will include a mixture of keynote presentations, academic papers and presentations from empirical research, debates on key issues and opportunities for meetings of specialist Journal boards, early career researchers, NGO practitioners and policy-makers. There will be parallel sessions on both days that will cover themes that have emerged in our submissions, including conceptualisation, school based education, further and higher education and informal learning – as well as more diverse sessions organised by the conference themes below. 


The conference aims to address 4 key themes:

  • Current challenges for Global Education
  • Opportunities created by the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Relationship to formal or further and higher education or informal forms of learning
  • Connecting researchers and policy makers on Global Education
