    Abstract

    Over the course of three years, the UNIDEV project sought to promote youth awareness and engagement with the MDG (Millennium Development Goals) and post-2015 frameworks in universities in Cyprus, Slovakia and Ireland. The partners undertook a range of activities as part of the programme. The idea for this resource arose out of a desire to develop specific development education materials that would target the new EU member state sector, and which would bring something new to the significant stock of development education resources already available. To this end, instead of providing just another book on general development education topics, the aim was to address contemporary development issues with a focus on the needs of educators in the new EU member states, as well as drawing material from contributors in those countries. The hope is that this book will be used by academics, researchers, NGO practitioners and students as part of development education work to further their understanding of key development issues facing the global community, and more so, to encourage citizen action to bring about a fairer more equitable world. The book covers twelve themes, each chapter includes both a conceptual overview and a teaching methodology section. The conceptual overview introduces the topic, explores the key concepts, theories and current debates. The teaching methodology section offers educators a set of tools that could help them introduce the topic in both formal and non-formal settings.
