EU Development Education Policy gaining momentum in the Parliament

There is increasing political will now for a globalised strategy for the European Union to raise awareness about development, experts say. But at the same time, the European budget for education on development issues remains strikingly low.

The European Union lacks an explicit strategy on development education, experts said at a first ever hearing on the subject at the European Parliament on Tuesday. The event was organised by the EU Parliament’s Development Committee.

Most European states already have national policies on development education. Recently, Spain, Portugal and the Czech Republic set up strategies to ensure greater public engagement in development matters. The UK currently does not have a national strategy as the current government revises its policies on awareness raising.
