Education is a global enterprise, but also varies importantly from one society to the next. Here at Penn, we are committed to global engagement, the notion that academic work needs to connect with policy and practice across the world. >> Watch the video >>Read more
International Internship Program
IEDP offers a unique international internship program for our students. Internships are partially funded by Penn GSE and undertaken in partnership with international NGOs and intergovernmental agencies across the globe. >>Read more
A new volume, co-edited by Lesley Bartlett (TC/CU) and Ameena Ghaffar-Kucher (IEDP/PennGSE) examines the role played by schooling in immigrant incorporation or exclusion, using case studies of Thailand, India, Nepal, Hong Kong/PRC, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kenya, Egypt, South Africa, Senegal, Sudan, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic. Drawing on key concepts in anthropology, the authors offer timely sociocultural analyses of how governments manage increasing diversity and how immigrants strategize to maximize their educational investments. The findings have significant implications for global efforts to expand educational inclusion and equity. See more information here.
