Aid and Education in Eritrea: Teacher Education and Education Sector Reform 2007- 2011

Thursday, July 14, 2011 - 12:00 to 13:00

LIDC, 36 Gordon Square, London, 12.30PM– 1PM


Eritrea is one of the key powers in the Horn of Africa. However, unlike its neighbours, Eritrea rarely features in international profiles of the region.

Drawing on his time working in Eritrea between 2007 – 2011, Chris Joynes presents an introductory overview of the Eritrean education system and recent efforts to reform teacher education, and reflects on the role that Eritrea’s recent history has played in its relationship with the international aid community.
