Event Information

Open to







Kester Muller

In this seminar, Susan will show how the coordination of education futures through anticipatory practices is mediated by the differences between UNESCO and the OECD: histories, missions, resources and geo-political alliances; use of different anticipatory practices; and ongoing tensions between the two organisations.

This online event will be particularly useful for researchers and those with an interest in educational policy making.
