Education in Small States

Policies and Priorities

image of Education in Small States
This publication argues for work by the Commonwealth and others on the particular and distinct challenges of education in small states, and for the need to examine the impact of changing global contexts, to document the changing nature and significance of recent and contemporary education policy priorities, and to advance the case for new and strengthened initiatives for education in small states.



The study will be of direct interest to a wide range of stakeholders involved in educational and social development in small states, to policy-makers, administrators, researchers, students, comparative educationalists, international agency personnel and practitioners at all levels in small states, throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.

Changing Global Contexts

This chapter identifies three priorities that were stressed by Ministers during the 17th CCEM. It cannot list all priorities and therefore highlights the strategic importance of selected themes. Looking towards and beyond the EFA and MDG agendas, particular attention is given to climate change, global financial interconnections, and migration, labour markets and skills.
