Education, Diversity, Globalisation and Ethics (EDGE)

Education, Diversity, Globalisation and Ethics (EDGE) is a research group which examines the multiple relationships between Education, Diversity, Globalisation and Ethics. The group is interested in themes around development education and sustainable development goals and processes, ethical intercultural collaboration, epistemological pluralism, cross-cultural dialogue and research-based (teacher) education. The group began its work already in the 1990s with both theoretical and practical interests to develop teacher education programmes focusing on intercultural education and ethics. EDGE’s research forms the bases of the educational programmes, the 5-year Intercultural Teacher Education and the 2-year Master’s programme Education and Globalisation. EDGE is coordinated by Professor Elina Lehtomäki.
