The project will focus on:

  1. Mapping existing provision and approaches to social justice, diversity and development education in Teacher Education institutions on both sides of the border
  2. Involving policy makers in the ministries on both sides of the Border to connect the academic and policy perspectives on the issues
  3. gathering attitudinal data on social justice, development and diversity issues among student teachers on two of the initial teacher education programmes and to establish whether there are observable differences in the patterns between students in the two jurisdictions, and between students on consecutive and concurrent programmes, in order to create an initial comparison which would inform a proposal for a larger study
