The Origins of this conference lie in a Collaboration between the University of Oulu (Finland), Otto-Friedrich Universität Bamberg (Germany), and DERC (UCL Institute of Education, UK), who for the past few years have organized an annual workshop for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers of the three institutions who are conducting research in the areas of development education, global learning and global citizenship.
Following the foundation of the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning, this Biennial international Collaboration continues, but is now delivered as part of the activities of the ANGEL network.
