  • Overview:
    • My research interests are education for democratic citizenship and human rights education (EDC / HRE) developed in an intercultural perspective. As a distance education specialist, my teaching at master's level is online and my students spread across the world. My group of doctoral students engage in research into citizenship and intercultural education in contexts including East Asia, Middle East, Latin America and Europe. I have acted as a consultant on human rights education and intercultural education for the Council of Europe, UNESCO and the British Council and I have led major research and development projects funded by the European Commission.

    • I am programme leader for the online MA Citizenship and History Education (University of London International Programmes) and online module tutor for the MA Education (Citizenship, History, Religious Education). I also teach the Citizenship Education and PSHE option on the B.Ed. I supervise students on the Ed.D and M.Phil and PhD programmes within the Doctoral School.
