Douglas Bourn, Professor of Development Education, UCL Institute of Education, is Co-Director of the Development Education Research Centre (DERC) at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE), which he established in 2006. He has written extensively on themes such as global perspectives within education, global dimensions in formal education and global youth work.

Professor Bourn will discuss themes that relate directly to current social and political debates concerning education, citizenship and social justice, including the rise of fake news and the possible dangers posed by Brexit. He will argue that we urgently need a more prominent discussion about the social purpose of education and the relationship of learning and skills to securing more globally just societies.
