Analysing global collaborations using a post-structuralist model of social justice and social change

Ragusa, Angela T. & Atweh, Bill (2003) Analysing global collaborations using a post-structuralist model of social justice and social change. In Bradley, Rebecca, Lyddon, Jeff, & Buys, Laurie (Eds.) Social Change in the 21st Century Conference 2003, 21 November, QUT, Brisbane.


The exponential growth of contacts and networks among educators around the world in an increasingly globalised market exists in a context of local and global inequality and stratification. Conflicting interests and agendas emerging from international collaborations have? spurred the need for a theoretical model that can critically explore and reflexively assess the dynamics of international educational collaborations. In a previous paper, we put forth a model for socially just collaboration that is informed by feminist writings of Young and Fraser. In this current paper we problematise simplistic classificatory uses of such a model. Further, using data from a study of globalisation trends in mathematics education, we illustrate the use of this model for critical assessment and analysis of social justice issues by dispelling singular classification schemata.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
