Complexity Theory, the Capability Approach, and the Sustainability of Educational Development Initiatives

This project considers the importance and implications of redistributing power in the field of education development by enhancing the self-sustainability of education initiatives and minimizing their roots in dependency – these as pre-requisites for improving their sustainable development outcomes. The project is based in an education development initiative run by the Barefoot College in India, from which is developed an explanatory model based in complexity theory and in the capability approach. The project’s outcomes are intended to ensure that education is better connected to its development context, more relevant to the interests and needs of the community it serves, and its quality enhanced.
