In the pages of Catalyst for Education and Gender Equality, we will look to connect different constituencies and bridge gaps between development education research and experience, theory and practice. We hope in some small way to facilitate a lingua franca for education, gender equality and development that crosses disciplinary and experiential borders.

The inaugural issue of Catalyst focuses on the theme of Empowerment Through Girls’ Education. Featuring an essay on the alignment of human rights and economic growth in education; a profile of University of Oxford Social Anthropologist Jason Hart’s work researching children’s experiences of conflict and education; a discussion of Rwanda’s successful approach to gender and education 13 years on from genocide; an update from Afghanistan on the education sector under attack; an overview of the United Nations Girls’ Education Initiative; plus girls from Nepal and DRC in their own words, a literature review, academic news and notes and a Parting Glance from the Palestinian Occupied Territory.
